Deep Freeze is a complex programme and you are best advised to scan pages here: https://www.google.com.au/?gfe_rd=c... for a site that suits your purpose

It sounded like it might be something like Goback which sets your c: drive in an overlay but apparently it's not I googled those two terms and found this discussion:

http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r17...

and from:

http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/296...

"(Deep Freeze) keeps your files, Registry, and programs in a virtual drive. Whatever changes occur on your PC, they aren't added to nor subtracted from that virtual drive."

And it makes me wonder if you purchased this legally why you don't know what it does or how to use it.

I found a lot of people wondering the same thing in the searches I did. Maybe Faronics is mum on details to keep competition away.

Deepfreeze is used widely in internet cafes in central america...As soon as someone downloads a virus or malware on a PC, you just reboot and everything is just the way it was before being infected. Makes sense to me.

I use it on a spare PC so I can experiment with different progs, etc without fear of getting infected.

I have used Deep Freeze in a small lab a while back. It 'freezes' a certain part of the hard drive and a thawed space on the hard drive as well for permanent storage of the hard drive. Any changes will revert back to original by bringing in the thawed space. The hassle I found is to do system/windows updates with Deep Freeze. It got to a point where it was a bit annoying. The price of Deep Freeze is also expensive especially for educational institutes that do not have much budget.

Researching for a free alternative to Deep Freeze brought up Reboot Restore Rx. It works just as same as Deep Freeze but it is lightweight, easy to use and free! I use Reboot Restore Rx now and quite happy with it. There is also Drive Vaccine if you want advance features.

Yeah agreed it is expensive but I think it would fine for such good software.

It protected my PC from malware before few days. I really dont know from where that malware came. It corrupted my personal files. For a moment, I was too much fustrated. But then a simple restart has gave me my data back safely.

I'm a non technical person but still able to manage Windows updates with Deep Freeze. This video help me a lot http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfXR...

Really happy with it. I have recommended it to our school admin.
