    I have recently installed Eaz Fix on my C partition, other non-OS partitions are not protected by Eaz Fix. For some light malware testing I want to cover other partitions with ShadowSurfer.

    Question is: Can I install and use SS in one of test snapshots of Eaz Fix and use it in full shadow mode to cover all partions while in that snapshot. Anyone did like this?

    Thanks

    Hi Aigle

    I never tried any shadow program with Rollback. Just remember that Eazfix uses an mbr modification, and also passes all disk i/o thru a kernel level driver. So these are two potential sources of conflict. There may be a few users doing it, but I'd have a good recovery image in any case.

    You are right. Both are dependent on a driver but I think due to very nature of Eaz Fix, it will take care of SS driver etc!
