    Is it safe to data anchor hosts file? Since it's under system folders, I thought I ask first.

    Edit: ok Thanks for the reply.

    I wouldn't anchor anything in the systems folder. You are just asking for trouble. Not sure I see the need.

    It's safe.
    Your block list would work in any snapshot. :D
    On the other hand, when you mess it up, it's messed up in all snapshots, probably no big deal for you.

    And when you decide to unanchor, you need to recreate the hosts files in the other snapshots.
    You might want to verify that Windows boots without a hosts file.
