Disabling Last Access Time Stamps

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.
