File-Based Write Filter (FBWF) (Standard 7 SP1)


File-Based Write Filter (FBWF) enables redirection of all changes made to a protected volume to an in-memory overlay. This provides system designers with the option of discarding all changes made to a system in a manner that is transparent to user applications. This inherent feature of FBWF can also be used for booting Windows Embedded Standard 7 images from read-only flash media.
