Enhanced Write Filter

Enhanced Write Filter (EWF) provides the ability to write-protect a run-time image. By redirecting all write requests to either a separate disk partition or RAM, EWF allows the run-time image to maintain the appearance of a writeable run-time image. Additionally, Enhanced Write Filter provides the ability to deploy a run-time image onto read-only media, such as a CD-ROM.
