WIM Server Installation

When you install your own wim server
think to set great numbers of variables per requests
rather than trying to modify your code for the bug not setting make

Secure your file loss

for your deleted files the FAT32 file system allows you to find your files by looking for? + filename? ake.bat for make.bat
with a disk utility in ASCII
for your file access the NTFS file system generates a log that you can consult
WIM will offer you to automatically analyze the log in the future

Secure your File Access

The linux version will be develop later there will be a file access verification

Under Windows thats the NTFS file system wich allow file access

On Mac Os X and HFS+ i dont know how, also you can use NTFS on a mac os x

WIM actually only report modification, deleting, creating with file, but doesn't allow file access verification, also there is a version of WIM wich analyse the NTFS Log, we will find it in one moment
