    Hi Cuelex, I'd like to inform you that if you enable Windows Disk Protection in Windows SteadyState, it can help to protect the system partition. Based on your needs, you can choose either "Remove all changes at restart" or "Retain all changes permanently".

    Windows Disk Protection On

    When Windows Disk Protection is turned on, it creates a cache file to retain all of the modifications to operating system or program directories. Histories, saved files, and logs are all stored in this cache file that has been created on a protection partition of the system drive. At intervals you can designate, Windows Disk Protection deletes the contents of the cache and restores the system to the state in which Windows Disk Protection was first turned on.



    Hope this helps!
