    Exclamation An easy fix for protecting unprotected partitions in a EWF/HORM environment?


    It seems to be the general consensus that an unprotected partition in an EWF/HORM enviroment must be locked/dismounted before hibernation and unlocked/remounted again once the system comes out of hibernation. Apparently this procedure is needed to to prevent corruption of the file system. Anyway, that sounded all a bit tedious to me (not even mentioning on how on how I would go about doing that) and I googled around a bit and came across this post on the Ubuntu forums: (Don't be put off by the url - it's actually a Windows application)

    This sounds like the perfect and simplest solution for the problem. But I'm not an expert, so could any HORM expert (SFiorito? ) weigh in on this and give their thoughts?

    So, has anyone tried it?

    Of course I tried it myself, but it operates in the background and I'm not really an expert on HORM to judge how effective it is. That's why I hoped that someone in the know has some more insight into how well this tool works with an unprotected partition.

    from the description, it seems like it should work. it's flushing the write cache upon hibernation, which is what unmounting the volume would do as well.
