Unified Write Filter


Recommended Posts

Dear board members,
there is a new feature on Win10 called "Unified Write Filter", UWF in short.
It is, similiar to EWF, creating an overlay to a volume and redirects disk writings to RAM.
(according to MS) It has limitations to Enterprise Edition and does not support "storage".
Is anybody around here who tested this feature?

Regards   B.

To be more precise:

The feature is available on Pro version of win 10 but the configuration program uwfmgr does not respond.

Did anybody get this to work?

It is in IoT as well and has some issues. The UWF does not support full disk or volume. For example, it will not work properly if you are using single read-only disk.

Look in the requirements for the feature, Pro is not there.
