Hi, I have tested TTF and its not far away from what I am looking for as it provides system wide vitualisation when I test programs etc.

I have been using Sandboxie which is great and I still will use it but I was looking for something a little easier and system wide to simply switch between normal and virtual modes.

The only downside I see with TTF is that it reboots when you dont save whats in the virtual drive. Also I am not sure if upon shutdown the system is in protected mode, does it re-start in protected mode and does my AV still work within the virtual sandbox ?

Apologies but I am pretty much a novice.

Is there another similar program which works much the same as TTF without rebooting when switching between virtual and normal states when you you do not wish to save the modified data ?

Thanks in advance for any responses.

Discard at reboot is the main purpose of System-wide virtualization softwares like TTF, Shadow Defender or Deep Freeze.

SD allow you to exclude folders so you can save your modified datas.

The only one i know to do this is "Diskshot" , a south-korean software but without english translation.

Thanks Umbra Corp,

I read a review on this site that in the exclusions the SD definintions update should be included. Do I just include the whole program folder or a file within it ?

No need to exclude any SD folder, Light virtualization programs don't use definitions. Since you are going to use SD on demand, I suggest you do all program updates (like antiviruses) out of Shadow mode. After doing the updates you can enable protection.

Like I mentioned in your thread at Wilders, I exclude only places.sqlite in order to be able to save bookmarks in Firefox and my download folders. I think excluding that type of folders and files is the perfect way for using the feature. Even if I was using an antivirus or any other program that updates everyday, I wouldn't apply exclusions for that.

For most of the AVs, all their folders. (only if you set SD to start shadow mode on every boot), if not it is not necessary.

Thanks Umbra, I think I will use it on demand after updates have been installed.
