Talk:Enhanced Write Filter
|WikiProject Microsoft Windows / Computing||(Rated Stub-class, Low-importance)|
I rewrote most of the article in what I think is a more appropriate tone, so I am removing the tags on the article. Feel free to readd them if anyone objects.
EBF is sector-level. FBWF is file-system level. Because EBF is sector-level, it does not understand the concept of a "file" or a "folder", and cannot do selective optimisation. However, because it is more basic, it allows the normal file system to be loaded on top, so it is not limited to the list of emulated features. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 09:22, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
The rather glib statement "Edit the last entry in the reg file […] to match your computer's setup. You can check your ArcName entry by looking at your current boot.ini file" appears. How exactly do you do this? ARC Names and BOOT.INI casts some light on the matter. --Salocin-yel (talk) 08:55, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Why is this only rated as "Stub Class"? It's a lot more than a "dictionary definition". How about "Start" or "C". It's a bit poor on reliable references (it's largely based on a single non-Microsoft web page) and as soon as you try to do anything you find it lacks important details. I've requested this page be reassessed --Salocin-yel (talk) 10:49, 8 May 2012 (UTC)
"Note that not all sources agree that ewfntldr is necessary"
"Booting from an EWF Volume Protected by a Disk-Based Overlay Requires the EWF NTLDR
The EWF NTLDR must be used when booting from an EWF protected volume backed by a disk-based overlay. The component is used instead of the standard NT Loader (NTLDR). The EWF NTLDR is not required when booting from a protected volume based by a RAM-based overlay. Booting from an El Torito CD does not require the EWF NTLDR." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 00:35, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
