    "Whenever XP reads a file, it stamps the file with the date and time of the access".

    My question is if I disable this feature will it effect FirstDefense?

    I don't believe so. When FDISR copies from a to b

    If a file is in a and not in b it copies it
    if a file is in b and not in a it deletes it from b
    and if the file is in a and b and is different it replaces the file in b with a. Doesn't matter if the one in b is newer.

    I would only add to this that the access time does not make the file "newer".

    I still use FD-ISR in one of my PCs and have last-access disabled. No issues.

    NAw, just been thru this with a sync program. I wanted it to work the way FDISR does, and first you have to understand it.

    The reason I ask is FD is not recording changes in a "encrypted file", "Dekart Private Disk". FD use to save the changes, but now has stopped since reinstalling windows XP. o_O No big deal, just wanted to know what would be causing this?

    Are you getting any error's? Also is something locking or self protecting those files?

    Figured it out, there was an option in Private Disk that was checked "Clear the last access time of the file-image". This was why FD could not see it.
    I thought it had to do with something about access time.:oops:
