There are several different modes of EWF based on the implementation of the EWF Overlay and the EWF volume. You can configure EWF to store the overlay data in either RAM or on a disk. The EWF volume can exist in unpartitioned space on the media, or within the system registry. For more information, see EWF Overview.
Select the mode of the EWF overlay when you configure the Enhanced Write Filter Component in Target Designer. EWF RAM Reg mode requires additional configuration settings after the run-time image is deployed.
