I've posted a comparison of 'instant recovery software' before.
Only shadow defender could keep the system safe from TDSS rootkits.
Today I found another one that works - DiskShot, the safest ISR software ever!!


1. Introduction

Diskshot™️ creates a sandbox to your system, and keep it safe from any malicious attacks / unwanted changes.



Basic operation

  • When you create an image, it keeps your initial data from being overwritten. all changes will be stored in sandbox.



  • And when it comes to recover your system, all changes within the sandbox is removed.



  • Also it provides 'commit changes' option, in case you want to make permanent changes.


Here are pros' and cons' compared to other product.

Pros
MBR, Sector-level, Disk-level protection at once
(Shadow defender does not provide [url="http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=2124620&postcount=29"]MBR-level protection[/url], you need to use additional software like MBRGuard)
provides TRUE protection against low-level attacks like rootkits
(which Deep freeze, Rollback RX cannot provide, they are bulls**t)
Keeps your data after reboot
(shadow defender removes the data each reboot)
TRIM support
(Especially for SSD performance/lifespan, only Rollback Rx supports this)
Provides pre-boot emergency center
(you can recover your data even when the system is not bootable.)
Supports GRUB multi-boot system
(to do this, install your grub to PBR sector in windows partition, instead of using MBR)
(and you need to use a custom configuration 'FilterBootSector=0', if you want how to do this I'll post it)
Is being actively developed
(Currently the author of shadow defender is MIA Sad )

Cons
No Multilanguage support
(it's a commercial software especially targeting korean companies)
(however I'm planning to provide an 'unofficial' english translation)
No Snapshot/Timeline feature (yet)
(however it will be supported in next version, as the deloper team promised)
No Hibernation
