Unlock one directory for saving files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I work in a school district.  One of our labs uses software that really needs to be run as an administrator in order to work consistantly and correctly.  Being that our users are 150 high school students every day, this is a recipie for disaster.  Having the computers restore themselves upon reboot is very appealing. 


    The students need to be able to cache files locally since there is only so much bandwidth and drive space.  30 students trying to save 2GB video files at once is a fast way to melt switches and servers alike, so we have a local folder the students save to.


    Is there a way to leave this folder out of the restoration proccess?


    Thanks for any help.

    Though we do not have a way to leave the folder out of Windows Disk Protection, I'd like to inform you that WDP only affects local system partition, if you setup the folder on another partition, it will be left out of WDP. This can be a workaround.
