Disabling Last Access Time Stamps

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 XP Embedded Studio Help.
