Closed Office computer reverts to "saved" settings on reboot Tags: Security Apps Last response: February 25, 2012 11:52 AM in Antivirus / Security / Privacy Share al360ex August 24, 2011 7:44:41 PM Hello, At the place where I work, the computers we are using seem to always revert back to an "image" or back-up when they are rebooted. I was simply wondering how it worked. For example, if I were to install a program on the C: directory, let's say Google Chrome, when I next reboot, it would be gone. Were I to unistall a program, the same thing would happen. If I delete something, it will reappear when it next reboots. How does that work ? What kind of program is it ? And how is it that the boot time is not longer than a normal computer, if it reverts back to a previous image/backup/copy of the C: drive ? There is a second drive on my workstation, and that one is unaffected. Whatever I place there is still there once I've rebooted. Thanks inputs/ideas on the matter ! al360ex More about : office computer reverts saved settings reboot Best solution Hawkeye22 a b 8 Security August 25, 2011 12:29:35 PM My guess is it's using virtual folders or a virtual drive. Heck, the whole OS may be a VM (virtual machine) in which case all you need to do is reboot to the last snapshot. Share Can't find your answer ? Ask !
