Issue/Introduction

GSS 3.x does have support for EWF/FBWF write filters for Windows XP/7 Embedded. Specifically, the write filter state is detected which is very useful for running jobs and tasks on the write filtered machine. The successor feature for Windows 10 - which does not have a separate Embedded edition - is UWF (Unified Write Filter) feature:

Can GSS 3.x similarly detect the UWF state on the client system running Windows 10?

Resolution

GSS 3.x does not feature detection of UWF state.

An enhancement request for this feature has been logged and this will be considered for a future version of the product.
