    Returnil System Safe 2011 home
    Real time protection: On
    Virtual mode: Off

    Virtual mode>Additional partition Manager>Drive D virtual mode On.
    File T-1 and file T-2 are now saved from partition C to partition D.
    Then, virtual mode of partition D is turned Off.
    Now check partition D to see if T-1 and T=2 are vanished.
    They are still there as nothing has happened.

    Virtual mode>Additional partition Manager>Drive D virtual mode On.
    Now, have all files on D deleted.
    Then, turn off the virtual mode of partition D.
    Check partition D. All files deleted in virtual mode are deleted permanently.

    What is wrong in the operations as described above?

    Thank you very much.

    Check your file manager to make certain that the drive or the files themselves are not listed. If they are, this would be why they are saved to the real disk.

    Thank you.

    The Define List of the File Protection is empty. There is nothing in the Define List, file or folder or drive.

    Strange - can you send in a copy of the rvs3.log file and an MSINFO32 report?

    Thank you.

    Inconvenient to get the logs & MSINFO32 reports because the computers are not mine.

    More findings.

    Computer AAM.
    Desktop, Acer Aspire M5700
    OS: Windows 7 Pro.64b.
    RSS: 2011 home.
    RSS Mode: Virus Guard Off; Virtual Mode On.

    Test 1.
    Switch ON the virtual mode of partition G.
    Then, save some files on G.
    Switch OFF the virtual mode of partition G.
    Open partition G, the files are still there.
    Close and re-open G,the files are gone.
    This is conducted for 3 times.

    Test 2.
    Save some files on G.
    Then, switch ON the virtual mode of partition G.
    Delete the files saved on G.
    Switch OFF the virtual mode of partition G.
    Open partition G, the files are gone.
    Close and re-open G 3 times, none of the files appears.
    Switch the virtual mode of partition G ON then OFF, open partition G, all the files re-appear.
    This is conducted for 3 times.

    Hi,
    Some suggestions on the test:

    1. Ensure you have clicked the "apply" button after changing the virtual mode state for the alternate, non-system disk and then try the test again.

    2. Rather than check the status of the file following the decativation immediately, restart the computer and then check the drive for the test file state.

    Let me know the result.

    Mike

    Thank you!
    It is not a problem once it is understood. The files as mentioned above in the test 1 & 2 are EMPTY even though their names are still there after switching off the virtualization of the partition.

    Thanks.
