StandbyDisk Solo RB (RescueBoot) is a unique and simple way to protect your bootable system volume. RB gives you an easy way to recover your system after any kind of software problem such as a resource conflict, a user initiated error or a failed application installation.  A unique advantage of RB is that recovery is almost instantaneous (requiring only a re-boot) and it is reversible. In other words, recovery will not erase or overwrite your original configuration so you may access it at a later time. You need remember only two functions of this clever software:  VolumeUpdate, and RescueBoot. Here’s how they work.

Step 1: VolumeUpdate

VolumeUpdate copies all the existing contents of your system volume (usually C:) into what we call the “StandbyArea” .  The StandbyArea is protected and hidden, and actually resides within the same C: volume. You may call this process “backup”, but we call it “Update”.  This is because for full protection you should also make a “backup” on separate media using another product. Please check the StandbySoft product line if you are also interested in independent-media backup.  To complete a VolumeUpdate the system volume needs almost twice as much disk space as what would be used if no VolumeUpdate had ever been done.
