WriteThroughFilesAndFolders (Standard 8 Module Reference)


Review the applicable Feature modules and any examples for the WriteThroughFilesAndFolders setting in Windows Embedded 8 Standard (Standard 8).

This setting contains list of the files or directories to which the File-Based Write Filter (FBWF) enables write access on the underlying volume. These files and directories are considered write-through, meaning that no filtering or caching takes place.

When you add write-through files or folders in Image Configuration Editor (ICE), a new line must separate each item in the list. When you add write-through files or folders by directly editing the XML in a configuration file, you must separate each file or folder by using a space. Do not include the drive letter or environment variables.

The following table shows the modules that you can apply this setting to. In Image Configuration Editor (ICE), you can follow the corresponding path to set this setting for a module.
