Has my last fix broken Steady State ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • After making changes to allow starting up without any keyboard entries I seem to have broken the  primary functions of Steady State. 

    After enableing 'protect the hard disk' and rebooting to a user profile I run the following test.  I create a folder on drive D and also delete a different  folder on drive D.  After a reboot I expect  drive D to be as it was when I enabled disk protection  ie   the newly created  folder to be gone and the deleted folder restored but their not.  Is this a valid test ?

  • Hi Noo Guy, I'd like to inform you that Windows Disk Protection only works on system partition. Thank you.

  • I'll answer my own question.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.

      It seems disk protections/reset at restart  only applies to drive c:

     

    Is there a way to make it also apply to drive d: ?

  • Thanks for the reply. 

    Another question,  Is there a way to permanently turn off the 'Scheduled software updates' ?  I keep turning it off and it keeps turning itself back on.  My target system will not be connected to the internet and I suspect this will cause me trouble.

  • If the computer does not connect to the Internet, I consider you can leave the Scheduled software update on. By turning on WDP, it will automatically turn on SSU for security purpose. Thank you.
