    Hello
    Does anyone have any experience with HDGuard? It's similar to Returnil and Shadow Defender, but has the advantage of retaining changes through reboots. Can protect multiple volumes.

    Any experiences out there?

    Thanks

    No experience, but the product description and target market sounds very similar to Faronics Deep Freeze, and I don't see where retaining changes through reboots is mentioned, in fact, I see the opposite stated throughout the descriptions provided.

    Retaining changes through reboots is indeed possible through seminar mode or software test mode.

    There are a total of three modes (from page 9 of the user manual):

    Automatic
    The “Automatic” operating mode restores the original data of the protected partitions
    with each restart. The user cannot interfere with this option.

    Software Test
    The “Software test” operating mode restores the original data of the protected partitions
    with each re-start under normal circumstances. The user can decide, however, that the
    data of the last session should be retained. The user can initiate this either during the
    preceding session or directly before starting Windows.

    Seminar Mode
    The “Seminar mode” of operation restores the original data of the protected partitions
    only if this is requested by the user. Under normal circumstances, all changes are
    retained from session to session! This mode of operation is therefore very well suited
    for seminars lasting several days, where the user would like to continue with his work
    the next day, for example.

    OK.., but that sounds like a permanent commit which you can do either prior to initiating a restart or prior to Windows start. If that's the case, the only added feature is being able to commit just prior to Windows loading, but that is certainly closer to Returnil/ShadowDefender than Deep Freeze.
