Hi. I am looking at the most convenient way to beta-test a software without damaging my pc and to revert back to its original state in case I don't want it.
I can think of several solutions
- I can image my HDD using Acronis or similar and revert back if needed; this takes time and space
- I can use a software such as "RollBack" which records all changes and enable me to define a snapshot and rollback to it: because this software tracks all changes, it consumes resources, spaces, and generate often technical issues
- I can use a sandbox such as sandiebox but it does not really operate within the OS and can fail for some software
- I can use a virtual machine but I will need to install a fresh version of Windows which does not reflect my computer as it is
What I am looking is a software that works only when I want it; just before the installation of the new software, I run it, then install the new software and then decide if I keep the changes or not. Then close it. Everything would be seamless and be done through the windows session.
Does such a software exist?
