Let me explain to you my Basic Aim . I want double Security . Meaning , I want to keep Deep Freeze as well as have a good Anti Virus Program on my p.c. However , the complication created is that since I have Deep Freeze installed on the C Drive , all the Virus Definition Updates , Quarantined Files & Log entries during a session are lost every time the p.c. is switched off & then back on .
So ,I have 3 choices .
1) Either I install the anti Virus Program on a Drive other than the C Drive .
2) Alternatively , another solution for me would also be to have a antivirus like Virus Scan Enterprise 8.5 installed on the C Drive but configure it in such a way that the Quarantine Folder , Log Files Folder & Virus Definitions Database Folders are in a Drive other than the C Drive . How can I reconfigure Virus Enterprise in this way ? In case , it's really not possible to configure Virus Scan Enterprise in this way , is there any other mcafee product which can be configured this way?
3) Final solution would be to write some code which automatically backs up these folders to a drive other than the C Drive every time I switch off my p.c. or at periodic intervals . How to write & execute such a code ?
Any Ideas ??
Application Control might do the trick for you, managing per se is difficult (KB60776, McAfee Knowledgebase, https://community.mcafee.com/message/117735)
http://www.faronics.com/Faronics/Documents/DFEnt_McAfeeEPO.pdf, bloody old but still has some valuable bits and bops.
From the deep freeze website: "Deep Freeze 7 integrates seamlessly with our new Faronics Anti-Virus – Deep Freeze maintenance periods are no longer necessary. With the implementation of Storage Spaces in Faronics Core, anti-virus updates, such as signatures, engine or product updates, will occur and be retained even while your workstations are protected in a Frozen state!"
Not sure if all that can help, since I'm unsure on what deep freeze is doing, how it operates but I hope that can give some food for your thoughts.
Hey there - I know your posting is a few years old, but I'm wondering whether you ever figured out how to have Deep Freeze and an Anti-virus with updating DATs actually work? If you did happen to get this to work, would you mind letting me know what you did?
I have Deep Freeze standard on a laptop with ePO 4.6.
Well kevinjt4 , I have both - Mcafee Virus Scan Enterprise 8.5 as well as Deep Freeze Installed & even with Deepfreeze on , Mc Afee seems to be updating correctly .
