    That's correct, no affiliation whatsoever - that's just my 'handle'. :D

    You said that commits scheduled is better that a file exclusion list

    With SD, how do you handle with firefox favorites which are daily updated ?

    This was a response to kjdemuth who was asking for clarification of a statement by Coldmoon regarding the approach taken by Returnil. It does not apply to Shadow Defender which does not support scheduled commits.

    For normal day-to-day operation, I only keep my system and recovery partitions in Shadow Mode. My Firefox profile is held on a separate data partition which is not normally virtualized; but when engaging in high risk activities, I also temporarily put the data partition into Shadow Mode as well. This is not inconvenient to do as non-system partitions can enter and exit Shadow Mode on the fly without rebooting.
