about Windows SteadyState Jun 2011

An Excellent program for Windows XP SP2/3 and Windows Vista. Unfortunately, no matter how many compatability settings I try, the software will not work with Windows 7. It installs and you can use some functionality, but the hard drive imaging and protection is not available. I will be testing Comodo Time Machine as a Windows 7 solution - but in XP, I am extremely satisfied with Windows SteadyState.
