Disabling Last Access Time Stamps (Windows Embedded Standard 2009)


If you are using an NTFS file system, you can increase the performance of EWF by disabling the last access date/time stamps.

To disable Last Access timestamps

  • Create the following registry key on your run-time image:

    Key Name: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem

    Name: NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate

    Type: REG_DWORD

    Value: 1

For more information about how to add this registry key to your configuration, see Adding Registry Data to a Configuration in Windows Embedded Studio Help.
