I have enabled UWF but added exclusions for several directories on the protected drive.
However, I'm finding that when I inspect the files in the overlay it contains files that are in those directories.
I would have thought that since these files are excluded and therefore written directly to the disk, they wouldn't be in the overlay. Is this correct?
According to Microsoft documentation on uwf exclusions
When a file or folder is in the exclusion list for a volume, all writes to that file or folder bypass UWF filtering, and are written directly to the protected volume and persist after the device restarts.
This is causing me problems because I have excluded directories where I know large files will be written, however because they're being written to the overlay anyway, the overlay is exceeding its maximum size.
Is there a way to prevent excluded files from being written to the overlay?
