Knowledgebase: Deep Freeze
How do I exempt (unprotect) a folder or file from Deep Freeze so that my application can update and my users can save their data?

Deep Freeze does not differentiate between user data, application data, or a virus infecting the system. This provides a very robust method of protecting the integrity of the computer, however specific files and folders cannot be exempted from the actions of Deep Freeze without moving them to another disk or volume on the system.

For a generic overview on how to retain data on a protected system please look at the following links:

The information at the links above can be applied to a number of applications, for steps for mapping application specific data please see below for examples;
