Faronics Deep Freeze Enterprise & Server Enterprise v8.6 Available Now!

31st Oct 2019

Deep Freeze Enterprise and Deep Freeze Server Enterprise are now available to download and introduce several enhancements.

Auto Grow ThawSpaces

Mark ThawSpaces to grow automatically if they get 75% full, up to a specified maximum size.

Thaw for Multiple Restarts

Set the number of Thawed reboots from the Enterprise Console. Option available for Reboot Thawed or Reboot Thawed Locked action.

Pause Scheduled Task

Choose to pause or resume Scheduled Tasks in the Enterprise Console. Right-click on the Scheduled Task to pause or resume.

Install All Windows Updates

In addition to Security, Critical, and Feature updates, choose to install all types of updates when downloading Windows updates from Microsoft (vs. WSUS).

Launch Batch, VB, PowerShell Scripts

In addition to .exe and .msi file types, now you can also launch .cmd, .bat, .vbs, .ps1 file types via the Remote Launch and Push & Launch actions in the Enterprise Console.

Specify URL or FTP for Remote Launch

Instead of specifying an existing file path for Remote Launch, now you have the option to specify a web URL or FTP location. The file will be automatically downloaded from the specified location and launched on the workstation.

Console Log Improvements

Determine how the Deep Freeze state has changed. E.g. determine if Deep Freeze was Thawed from the console, locally on the client, or via Command-Line.

Set Default Location for Installers

Enterprise Console can now remember where you prefer to save newly created workstation installers and configuration files. Set the default location while saving the file to your desired location.

Windows XP & Windows Server 2003 End of Support

To ensure Deep Freeze continues to take advantage of the latest technologies, Faronics is officially dropping XP and Server 2003 support in this version of Deep Freeze. Microsoft officially ended Windows XP support on April 8, 2014 and Server 2003 support on July 14, 2015.
