Norton GoBack Personal Edition Symantec Corporation

What is Norton GoBack Personal Edition Symantec Corporation?

Norton GoBack is a disk utility that can record up to 8 GB of disk changes. When the filesystem is idle for a few seconds, it marks these as "safe points". The product allows the disk drive to be restored to any point within the available history. It also allows older versions of files to be restored, and previous versions of the whole disk to be browsed. Depending on disk activity, the typical history might cover a few hours to a few days. GoBack replaces the Master Boot Record, and also replaces the partition table with a single partition. This allows a hard drive to be changed back, even in the event that the Operating System is unable to boot, while also protecting the filesystem from alteration so that the revert information remains correct.


Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The setup package generally installs about 10 files and is usually about 5.82 MB (6,100,496 bytes).
