    Would be nice if there were a checkbox for File Protection to start and stop (on shutdown) with Session Lock.

    When I use Returnil, part of the files that need to be watched aren't on the system partition, keeping them safe from crashes and backup-image restores.

    Unfortunately, sometimes I forget to turn File Protection off before shutting down a Locked session. At best, when I remember in time, it causes some clutter as the files get silently routed to the system partition. At worst, I forget, and with the files getting routed silently, only notice them gone after restoring a system image.

    A checkbox on the File Protection page would do the trick.
