GoBack is the utility you need! In Corporate environments every system administrator should deploy this software on workstations to avoid many problems simply by switching back in time! But doing so will they still have a job? With GoBack 2.2 home users have at last an efficient solution to protect their files, their hard work and their system from any outages. For the price GoBack is a great buy even if it consumes some system resources and has some drawbacks explained above. Windows Me users will find GoBack much more powerful than the system restore feature due to its various features.

Finally even experienced users will enjoy benefits from GoBack since the software will solve their problems much faster than before without the need to drink coffee and take aspirin!
