Selecting the Rollback type
DriveRestore Professional provides the option to create a Rollback file or a removable Boot Disk. The Rollback file and the bootable disk are copies of the original pre-repair drive structure.
This creates a file that can be saved to any drive and is used to roll back any changes made to the drive. This option is used primarily for non-bootable drives e.g. data drives, removable drives, external hard drives, etc.
Boot Disk files are saved to a removable drive. The Boot Disk enables the user to boot the computer from a removable drive, if for any reason the system fails to start after the drive changes have been implemented. This is the recommended Rollback option for active partitions i.e. system/boot drives that are used to start the system.

This is a FreeDOS command line function. The Boot Disk will prompt you to select a Rollback file. Select the Rollback file and the computer will be rolled back to its previous state.
