    Do you mean what works with FirstDefense? If that's what you're asking, I've been using Comodo firewall (version 2), NOD 32 anti-virus (version 2), Anti-Executable (version 1), BoClean, and Sandboxie ... all without a hint of trouble with FirstDefense. :cool:

    Likewise here, Online Armor, SSM, Realtime Defender at times, I had Avira free on for a while, have Mbam realtime on, no FDISR issues.

    Been trying DriveSentry on my laptop. I started to make a secondary snapshot last night and have been prompted more than a dozen times so far, DriveSentry repeatedly blocking isrcopyxp.exe writes, even though I respond in DriveSentry through advanced view with Allow & Remember. I will have to give a try to manually whitelisting isrcopyxp.exe and see if that quiets it down. It's slowed the copy down so much over night that it currently projects 26 hours til completion - LOL.

    Mamutu working fine with FD-ISR on my desktop.

    Of course, FD-ISR is tooling write alongside NIS2009 on all six of my systems.:D

    EDIT: Well, isrcopyxp.exe was already on trusted list and I can see it drop off the list and then I get prompted again for the next copy operation, no rhyme or reason, will try posting the issue at DriveSentry's forum, since I think Katie is off for holiday break at the moment - no doubt well deserved.

    I suspect that the white list of programs that work without incidence with FD-ISR that you are looking for will dwarf the black list of programs that don't. The programs that are problematic can easily be counted without even using double digits. ;)

    I"d be surprised if there are more than a half a dozen FD-ISR/Program problematic scenarios!

    I've only had one program that I really liked that would consistently produce FD-ISR errors. Then, I used the usual work-a-round of updating/archiving while in a different snapshot. I tired of that though.:(

    I would suspect the problem with drive sentry is it's guarding files that FDISR is copying. May have to disable it.

    Or... As a workaround - Copy/Update or Archive from a different snapshot. I have yet to find that this approach has ever produced errors. Yes, it is inconvenient. :mad:

    Trust is trust and I don't see any reason FD-ISR should be suddenly dropping off of DriveSentry's trusted list after I explicitly add it and tell it to remember it. I can watch it drop off the list and then it pops an alert like a goose on a new day. So, for now DriveSentry is incompatible with FD-ISR and I have raised the issue over in DS's forum. Since I'm trying out the software, I'll try out their support and keep on like I am and give them a shot at resolving the incompatibility.
