    Faronics DeepFreeze - ThawSpace Explorer?

    I work in a school district that has a one-to-one laptop initiative. Once each machine is imaged and configured, it is "frozen" using Faronics DeepFreeze. Each student has a ThawSpace (5Gigs) in which to store their work.

    Occasionally, we have a hard drive stop working properly and need to recover the student's ThawSpace. Previously, the drive was connected to a technician's desktop and the ThawSpace file was saved, then transferred to a working image.

    In the new version of DeepFreeze, the ThawSpace file in not interchangable between installations.

    My question is, has anyone developed a "ThawSpace Explorer" that can read / copy the contents of a ThawSpace file?

    Accessing ThawSpace

    It may be too late for you (and I don't know if you'll get notification of the reply), but I found your post while researching ThawSpaces. In so doing, I found the following blog as well:

    Heath Parker’s blog o’ IT

    More specifically:

    Playing with Faronics Deep Freeze pt 1 « Heath Parker’s blog o’ IT

    wherein the author discovered that the DeepFreeze ThawSpace is actually a file on the hard disk which is legible by tools such as ImDisk or WinImage. This might put you on the right track.

    If a version upgrade led older versions of ThawSpace to be illegible by newer versions, you may be out of luck :-(

    Good luck!
