    horm without ewf, is it possible?

    i've been reading through the forums a lot , since i am about to install another carpc in my new car. i do basicly like the idea of starting the system with HORM , but i don't want to use ewf , because of the writeprotection.
    is there any other way , to use the same hibernation image evereytime, and leave the drive writeenabled ?

    thnx

    you could copy over the files that are needed for ewf, make reg chnages but just disable to protection.

    should work, has anyone tried it? im also looking at going down this route.

    EWF redirects writes from the physical disk to either RAM or a hidden partition. If you want to prevent writes to your disk then that's what you need to use. There was some other tool (ReadyOn, I think) that claimed to optimize the hibernation process, but I haven't heard anything about it in a long time.

    after checking out Venturcom's website it seems like this works the same way as EWF/HORM. So it needs to be running (protecting the volume from writes) in order for the HORM functionality to be working.
