  • New EWF & HORM manager tool

    Hello,

    I have coded a small utility to simplify the handling of EWF and HORM features and I would like to share it.

    This utility, EWF&HORMmanager, (written with AutoIt v3, http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/) can be used to enable/disable EWF and HORM (on the system disk only): it's a GUI for the "ewfmgr" command line program. Moreover it can be used to unmount the disks not EWF-protected and to start the hibernation process.

    In order to use EWF&HORMmanager you should have installed properly EWF & HORM tecnologies from XP Embedded Feature Pack 2007.

    The included program "hibernate4HORM" is derived from source code published by Microsoft (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa460084.aspx); it's used by EWF&HORMmanager to lock and unmount the EWF-unprotected drives, to hibernate the system and then (at resume time) to unlock the drives.

    I know that there is almost another tool doing the same thing, the HORM Manager Lite from Wechsler Consulting, but I found some problems running that tool with XPe FP 2007 and I would like a simpler GUI...

    Hope this can be useful to someone...

      nice...one problem though. I tried running it on my carpc setup and I get the error saying I need xpepm tool. Is this in the xpe packages somewhere?

      Also, I'm running server 2003 if that makes any difference.

        I'm sorry, I forgot to say that EWF&HORMmanager requires xpepm.exe and xpepm.dll from Windows XP Embedded SP2. You should take tham from the binaries catalog of the evaluation version and put them in C:\WINDOWS\System32...

            EWF & HORM manager tool update

            I forgotted to disable "horm.dat" flag file when disabling HORM, so "normal" restore from hibernation file was not possible. In version 1.1 HORM disable renames the flag file, so that it's possible to use HMRM... :-)

                  Here are all the ewf - horm files you should need

                  I take credit for none of this.
                  I can't provide any support, I barely understand it myself.

                      I know its a bit old thread. But one question;
                      does it matter if hdd control is IDE or AHCI mode?
                      I want to use both ewf and horm on my win7 x86 OS.

                        Seems like both is OK. Tested myself on win7 x86 embedded sp1.

                          Hello.
                          Time is going but is there someone out there who owns this file by now? All Links dead, but maybe i need it to test and use.

                          All hints apreciated.
