Commercial Deep Freeze Alternatives

Deep Freeze is an administrative IT tool that guarantees 100% workstation recovery upon restart. Enterprise IT demands that. While there are alternatives, that guarantee makes Deep Freeze the clearest choice and one that's very tough to beat. The closest alternatives can be filtered with the Restore on Reboot feature.

Open-source options are rare in this list and many open tools become discontinued quickly. It's hard to rely on a workstation tool that might get discontinued so that's a clear strength of commercial tools like Deep Freeze. On the other hand, there are some outstanding free tools

These tools are predominantly for Windows. Like Deep Freeze, a few support Mac as well. The open source tools are generally made for Linux.
