Software Usage Part 4
The next SD option is the Commit Now box:
This is an easy way for users to commit any files/folders that reside on volumes which are currently in Shadow Mode. Committing of files/folders via this box is immediate.
There is also the very useful context menu commit option that I mentioned earlier: Users can right-click on any files or folders which are located on volumes that are currently in Shadow Mode, and then select the Commit by Shadow Defender context menu option. The following prompt will come up:
This context menu commit option is great for cases where you want to save your own changes on demand, for any files or folders which reside within a protected volume. You can make any changes to any file or folders, add or remove stuff, then right-click on them and commit your actions immediately. If you tick the Do not recurse into subfolders option, then your changes will be saved only for the contents of the topmost folder (the one you right-clicked in the first place). Any other subfolders contained within (along with all of their contents) will remain unchanged if that option is ticked.
Such manually committed changes won't be undone when you reboot. If you have also deleted stuff from those folders while in Shadow Mode and you want those items to stay deleted, then make sure you to also tick the Commit Deleted Files option. This ensures that any content you have already removed from those folders while in Shadow Mode won't come back upon rebooting.
The penultimate option on the left contains the Administration settings. The options here are self-explanatory:
A VERY IMPORTANT NOTE FOR PARENTS HERE: If the computer is also used by youngsters, I would strongly recommend for you to use the Shadow Defender password option. Here's why:
A password will stop the kids from possibly disabling Shadow Mode or messing with the other SD settings. Make sure you select a strong password that your children won't be able to guess. Don't write the password down or save it as a text file; it has to be something that only you will know and remember. There is also a cache encryption option there which is disabled by default. If your system is very old/underpowered/low on resources, I would recommend for you to keep this option unticked.
