No offense, but you don't know wth you're talking about. The thawspace has been around since for years, and you don't even need it. All it is is a temporary partition which is created before Windows loads where changes can be made that will not be erased. It's much easier and faster for the workstation to simply create a logical partition and set that drive letter as unthawed or not frozen.
I'm not sure how it works, but I know the program itself is a pain in the arse to work with. I worked at a college that had it running on around 800 student computers. And it can get quite annoying. One of the newer versions goes into what we called "hardening" mode...where the icon in the taskbar disappears after the machine has been on for a certain period of time. Sometimes it takes 3 or 4 reboots to get it back too
What mzkhadir was talking about..."thaw space"...is a new feature of deepfreeze which allows you to designate a "partition" for deep freeze to create, which allows you to save files in, and reboot without loosing them. The only downside is when deepfreeze is uninstalled, you also wave bye bye to your thawspace and the files it contained. I sure hope they changed that in the newest version.
It's a program I'd avoid if I could. But in some situtuations (like at the college), it's one of those things that you just have to deal with.
