'Returnil', and 'USB Flash Drive Write Protection'

Dennis Faas's picture


Returnil is similar to a virtual machine program: it allows you to use a virtual copy of your operating system, with the real system being preserved and untouched in the background. This provides two key advantages: protection against threats (malware, exploits, etc), as well as convenience incase you need to revert your system. Returnil's personal edition is packed with all kinds of exciting features and is free of charge.


USB Flash Drive Write Protection

Windows has a registry setting that can utilize USB write protection. Without the feature being turned on (and without being careful), you can corrupt files on your USB drive. Using a registry hack, you can turn on the Flash write protection.
