Enhanced Write Filter API (EWF API)

The Enhanced Write Filter API (EWF API) component provides the Enhanced Write Filter API. The EWF API exposes a set of functions that allow an application to interact with EWF. Add this component to your run-time image to support calls to the EWF API.

EWF is used to protect one or more disk volumes by intercepting write requests to the volume and redirecting them to an overlay volume. The EWF API makes it possible for applications to query and modify EWF configuration settings for protected volumes.

For more information about the EWF API, see the Enhanced Write Filter API Overview topic in Windows XP Embedded Help.
