Just where did I poo poo your plan. I don't recall ever doing so.Bear said:It's not a lot of work at all. If I'm going to make an image, I do it
when I take a break or eat lunch or go to bed or whatever...and it
actually only takes an average of about 20 minutes for my system anyway.
Restoring an image, well the same thing applies. It's a very simple
thing to do.
This makes no sense. There are no silver bullets when it comes to
malware prevention. I've said that here many times. There is no such
thing as a cure-all for anything. I've never said there was. What I have
said is the process I use is the best approach using today's tools and
it includes several safety nets.
Why else would you need to recover...it is exactly a plan to manage your
system and data and free yourself from the harm malware can inflict. Of
course it also applies to hard drive failure or the like, but such is
more rare and some people can change out their own hard drive and some
can't. Anyone can do the Pristine image and data management plans.
I'd like for you to list a comprehensive plan that would be more
efficient than the one I propose. If you are going to poo poo my plan,
then at least have the courtesy to back it up with a specific
alternative that works better and is easier, takes less time and allows
any skill level to do so. Balls in your court.
