    Hai!

    I am new to this.

    I have a problem with one of my software.

    I use Rosetta Stone. It is a language learning/teaching software. You can create profiles/users and that keeps track of the progress.

    After installing the Returnil, every time I restart the computer, the reverts back to and takes me to the same old lessons again and again.

    Is there a way to allow changes to certain files like my profile in Rosetta Stone? Or is there a smarter way of doing this?

    I use Windows 7 with free Returnil.

    In the paid versions of Returnil, you can use the File Manager to specify files whose changes you want to remain even after a reboot. The File Manager is not available in the free version, however. What you can do is save the changed files to a partition Returnil doesn't cover, or to an external drive (e.g., a flash drive or an external hard drive), or to a Virtual Disk (Returnil permits you to make such a disk). Then, after you reboot, move the changed files back to your computer.

    I had the same problem recently, with another program I wanted to resume after reboot. I solved it with hardlinks (junctions) which I found is a really great solution for me. I use it with Windows 7.

    You find some useful information on this concept here:
    http://schinagl.priv.at/nt/hardlinkshellext/hardlinkshellext.html

    This solution worked out for me:
    1. installed program in folder "program files" on C: as usual
    2. moved complete program folder (for the program) to second data partition (say L:, which is not saved by Returnil)
    3. set program folder on L: as "link source" (via mouse context menu)
    4. chose "drop as junction" in folder "program files" on C:

    So it looks as if the program is installed on C: but all the data are actually stored and saved on L: Very easy and comfortable. But you need to make sure that the settings are stored in the program folder, not in "Documents and Settings" or somewhere else ...
