How Deep Freeze Can Benefit You This Winter
No I’m not talking about what chills your skin and makes your car take forever to warm up, I’m talking about Deep Freeze by Faronics software. Deep Freeze is a software option that magically restores your computer to a set state every time it is restarted. Deep Freeze is made to store a desired system configuration in a way that if anything goes horribly wrong, whether it’s a corrupted file or a virus was downloaded, restarting the computer will fix the problem.
Using Deep Freeze has many benefits
- If your data is ever corrupted or lost, you can just restart to have it again.
- If a virus infects your computer, just restart to get rid of it.
- It protects against root kits and other nasty viruses by locking down the master boot record, protecting from viruses that may try to mess with Deep Freeze.
- Your important documents, pictures, videos, and anything else you want to keep safe are stored in the “Data Igloo” that is loaded each time the computer starts.
What’s great about Deep Freeze is that when you have something important that needs to be saved, like a system update or important document, it will be added to your Data Igloo without any extra steps needed. For example; system updates, antivirus updates, and even your user profiles are being saved and loaded from the Data Igloo in a completely seamless process behind the scenes. You can also set up your Data Igloo to target specific files and directories that are maintained across reboots, adding them to the machine’s “Frozen” state. This means that if a virus tries to mess with a file, or something gets accidentally deleted, a simple restart cleans up the whole mess.
Whether you are looking to keep viruses out of your system, have important data to keep safe, or just want a near bullet-proof computer; Deep Freeze is a great way to lock down your computer from any possible problems, all of which can be solved with a single restart.
