    Surely the best solution is to implement this at the filesystem level like a live CD, where the filesystem is read-only but you can 'update' it by writing to RAM disk filesystem?

    That way there's no need to copy anything as the new 'files' are in RAM and disappear on the next reboot.

    I am not trying to be mean, honestly.
    But why is everyone so keen on changing my question?

    You have probably asked this question in the wrong sub-forum, if you want to create an application. I would suggest you ask your question in the Programming Talk sub-forum.

    Jake, did you ever figure out how to create what you want? My boss and I were just discussing this very thing. Why isn't there an Open Source version of Deep Freeze? It's exactly what we are looking for. We have a 45-station public computer lab at a library. We're currently using SteadyState, as we have XP machines. We want to move to Windows 7, but in Microsoft's ultimate wisdom, they have discontinued compatibility. They apparently started out offering something like SteadyState to use with Windows 7 and then took it away. I would think there would be thousands of small internet cafes, public libraries and schools that are looking for the same thing. I'm surprised I can't find anything. If you come up with something, I would love to try it:
