    Hello everybody!

    I've been looking for days for an aswear to my question and until now no forum that I went to manage to response to this, but, I feel this is my lucky day because I see that there are many posts which are talking about different DF alternatives.

    The thing is I'm looking for a software that makes practicaly the same thing that DeepFreeze does, and that is "freeze" all my hdd partitions but instead I want some folders to remain unfreezed. I have an internet cafe and most people want to save their progress in single-player games but that "damn" deep freeze keeps restoring all my system back to normal.So everywhere I asked people didn't knew an alternative to deepfreeze with that property.Now I ask you, is there any alternative software that does this? (and not Returnil because I tried it and didn't worked as I hoped)

    Sorry for my rusty spelling.Thanks anticipated !

    I use Shadow Defender, with shadow mode enabled 24/7. I have a few games installed, and I make exlusions to only the profiles directory. Reboot and any changes are gone unless there is an exclusion. I have not noticed any adverse issues doing this.

    NP. Hopefully it works for you. The folks here who advised me to use it were correct, it is a very nice program.
