There really should be some kind of good tutorial setup on this website on how to configure your system for best results of a good snapshot of the basic system so you won't encounter problems later. Here's what happened to me. I did a complete rebuild of my laptop from scratch the OLD FASHIONED way with a full reinstall of xp home and all MS patches/updates. Once i had this VIRGIN system done I installed FDISR and that's where the problems begin. What I wan't to know is : Should I have set up my computer setting more by setting up a limited user account first and password protect both admin and limited user account and saving those settings by a log off and on again in both accts before doing a snapshot?? Plus PLUS should I have ALSO disabled MS restore functions before my install of FDISR? Then the issue becomes WHEN do I do a DEFRAG! Should I have defragged BEFORE the FDISR install onto a fresh rebuilt fully patched system? I did a system analyze just to see how fragmented a clean fully patched and updated new reinstall would be and it said it was about 8% fragemented. Thats harsh to swallow on a rebuilt fresh system. So questions now about when to do a defrag, when to install FDISR when setting up admin and user accts with pssword protect and why or why that is or isn't important. Next my questions continue with at what POINT in time AFTER the initial install of FDISR should you ENABLE data anchoring because it CAN make a difference if you don't FIRST setup a limited user account and password protect them because how is a system supposed to share files between shapshots if one snapshot has both an admin and limited user account setup and one snapshot only has admin and the data anchoring had the info saved in it from both admin and limited user account favorites and My documents? I'm currently thinking now that I have to remove info about my limited user account favs and My documents from the data anchoring saved file and worry now about corruption of that said data anchoring file. Sheesh. I have it in my head that it could be problematic to remove files from the data anchoring file. Anyone know? What issues should I be made aware of? All my snapshots are from a primary snapshot WITHOUT the limited user acct setup or the admin password protected yet. Lots of issues...My system currently WON'T accept changes to the limited user account because I THINK (not sure) that the data I put into the data anchoring file is messing with my ability to change settings in my limited user account that you normally are able to change with a limited user account such as the power settings for the limited user and "ask for password upon resume" for the screen saver. I'm have screen saver issues now. I want to disable this stuff in the limited user account but it won't let me. UGH!! I did disable this stuff in the ADMIN account so not sure why it won't in the limited user account other than to guess the files I put in the DATA ANCHORING file are messing with it. The data I did put in there was the limited users accounts "Favorites" and "My Documents." Is that normal? What issues should I need to be aware of when REMOVING data from the data anchoring file? In summary: When to do defrag? What issues to watch out for in a defrag such as MBR? ON fresh reinstall is it a problem for data anchoring to share data between 2 snapshots if one doesn't have the limited user account yet? If setting up a data anchoring situation with the limited user acct info such as "Favorites" and "My documents" why does it lock up settings in the limited user acct so they can't change screen saver or password or power selections? This is still allowed in a limited user acct pre-data anchoring. What issues to be aware of when removing data from a limited user account in the data anchoring folder if any? Thanks for any help.
