Solved Relocating Quarantine & Log Folders in certai

November 18, 2011 at 05:19:49
Specs: Windows XP
I have Deep Freeze installed on my p.c. & Deep Freeze simply undoes any changes to the C Drive once the System is switched back on after switching it off .
However , as a result I also lose all the files that may have been quarantined & any log entries done by the Anti Malware Programs . So , I would like to relocate the same for (i) Super Antimalware (Free) (ii) Malware Bytes (Free) (iii) Threatfire .

Can u tell me how to do this ?

What good is Deep Freeze if it moves the files you want to keep?? It sounds worthless to me. Uninstall it.

Actually Deepfreeze is an AWESOME program. I use it on one of my PC's in my shop to download progs, movies etc.

'However , as a result I also lose all the files that may have been quarantined & any log entries done by the Anti Malware Programs . So , I would like to relocate the same for (i) Super Antimalware (Free) (ii) Malware Bytes (Free) (iii) Threatfire .'

You don't need an AV or any malware tools when using deepfreeze. Use a thumb drive or external HD for saving files etc...

'What good is Deep Freeze if it moves the files you want to keep?? It sounds worthless to me. Uninstall it.'
You obviously don't know ANYTHING about Deepfreeze

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions 7 Medals

What makes the program so great if your solution to the original poster's problem is to use an external drive to save files?

Well , I guess XPUser4Real is right . Maybe I 'm just trying to be Over-Cautious as far as the Security of my p.c. is concerned . When I already have Deep Freeze installed , what is the need to also have an AntiVirus Program installed ?

Howvever , since I have Deep Freeze active ONLY for the C Drive , (because that's where most of the Viruses lodge themselves) , what about my D & E Drives ? If I don't have any Anti- Virus , my D & E Drives will always be TOTALLY UNPROTECTED . I usually keep all my Programs & other important files in the C Drive but all my Data files are in the D & E Drives . What if one fine day some Virus erases many of these files or corrupts all the Data in the D & E Drive ? What then ?

Let's take your thought process a step further. Yes, viruses lodge themselves on the system drive which is usually C:\ but where in C:\?. Then answer is in the registry. I lock my registry. So if a virus is in circulation & the anti virus company doesn't know about it yet, I still have some protection. If I virus is released today, who notifies the anti virus company & when? It could be a week later.

Now, let's go to files & where to save them. One thing is for sure, we want to save them in at least two places. 3 are better. Microsoft sync toy makes that easy & it's free.

Well , I just hit upon a somewhat brilliant idea . I already have Deep Freeze installed FOR C drive so C drive is Safe . However , since my Data files are in D & E Drive (And they keep changing often) , I want to protect these Drives as well . So , I am going to uninstall my Anti Virus Programs from the C Drive & instead install them in the D Drive . This way , the Log & Quarantine Entries of the Anti-Virus Programs will REMAIN everytime the p.c. is switched off & then on again !!

Now , I just need to check whether Anti virus Programs can be installed in a Drive other then the C Drive or not . I' give it a try & also ask this question in a few Forums . If it works , then I guess my Security issue will be addressed .

You can't install the AV program on the D: drive. There is no registry there.
