I installed Deepfreeze 5.0 in my computer in 2007. It was functioning properly until recently. I tried to create a new partition on my computer, so I had to take down Deepfreeze for me to be able to create the partition. After some unknown cause the application collapsed.
I assumed that the program erased its data, but I was wrong because the .exe files still exist, and Deepfreeze continues to run in the background, but I think after the crash it caused an unwanted effect on my computer hard disk. I cannot close or stop the program. Please, I need the solution to this problem or I might have to reformat my computer, which is something that I wouldn’t want to do.
Having problems with DeepFreeze 5.0
I think there’s no solution to that since Deep Freeze already got corrupted. The only job of Deep Freeze is to restore the computer every time it boots. The whole system will be restored from the very last state when Deep Freeze was initiated. This application will restore the whole hard drive. So if you are working let’s say in Microsoft Word and then you save it in the hard drive and you did not make a backup save in a removable drive, for example in a USB flash drive, all of your work will just go to nothing. You will not be able to retrieve the file again.
Since you haven’t touched your computer for a very long time since 2007, I think this is a good time to reformat the hard drive. But before doing the reformat on the hard drive, try if it is still possible to boot in safe mode. Just to save some of your important files from being deleted. If you are successful in booting in safe mode, copy all of your important files in a separate external drive.
