I noticed another issue, that is related to layout.ini  - VirtualStore feature of Vista.

There is a 64 MB data file in Program FilesArena\Book\mainbook.abk ( Chess opening database) , managed by my layout.ini.  This file has last access date 3rd January.  Smiley 

The reason is this file is not used at all, but other - modified - copy in my VirtualStore.
( Users in Vista are able to modify files in Windows or Program files even without write permission.
It is Vista tricky solution, redirecting the write to VirtualStore folder in \Users\user\ area.)

Note that I use Vista under non-privilaged account.

That file is than used for given user instead of the original file.
The illusion of using the original file is so good,
that other parts of Vista are fooled by that.   Smiley

In my case it is easily avoided by LastAccess timestamp.

Yes, it will be a reason.

Yes, but the main issue is Windows trying to "optimize" everything you do by including your recently used files and whatever MS thinks should be there. I have found MS office files that I never use in the layout.ini file. So trust me: it cannot be trusted.  Wink

I trust you. But I need not to trust you not to trust layout.ini.   Cheesy

I remember PerfectDisk has several options for layout.ini.
Roughly said  either mainly full layout.ini content, or boot files only .
( about max 20% of the former ).

But I do not want people think I am starving for boot optimization.
The thread was opened to clarify script features for myself.
