Working with the File Based Write Filter Utility
The File Based Write Filter provides a secure environment for thin client computing by protecting the thin client from undesired flash
memory writes. Changes made to the thin client configurations are lost when the thin client is restarted unless the files of the File
Based Write Filter cache are cleared during the current system session.
Use the following guidelines to configure the File Based Write Filter Utility:
1. Log in as Administrator.
If automatic logon to a user desktop is enabled, you must log off the user desktop and log in as an administrator. For more
information, see Logging On.
2. To disable the File Based Write Filter, double-click the FBWF Disable icon in red color on your desktop.
This disables the File Based Write Filter and reboots your thin client.
3. Configure the thin client as per your requirements.
4. After you configure the thin client, to enable the FBWF, double-click the FBWF Enable icon in green color on your desktop.
This enables the File Based Write Filter and reboots your thin client.
Your configurations on the thin client are saved and they will persist after a thin client device reboot.
