Q:
Matt asked, "What would happen to my systems if the SVS filter driver fails?"

A:
Hey Matt, thanks for the question. Computer systems depend on drivers every time they boot. What would happen to your system if its video card or hard disk driver were to fail for some reason? Like any driver, there is always the possibility, however unlikely, that an unrecoverable error could occur. In that case, the most likely result would be that the system would be rebooted. Any data that was written to the hard drive during that session would still be preserved in its corresponding layer. Any data that was hosted in system memory and hadn't been committed to the hard drive (saved) would, of course, be lost.
