Direct Storage being bocked by Comodo
« on: September 30, 2022, 01:18:27 PM »
Does anyone know a fix for the Direct Storage API being blocked by Comodo.

If check in the xbox game bar on windows 11 under gaming features, it states the GPU and OS supports the latest DirectStorage IO optimisations. But under drive status it states on all my nvme drives that BypassIO not Supported due to driver: cmdGuard.

If you open an elevated command prompt and type fsutil bypassIo state (drive letter):\ I get the following reply

BypassIo on "c:\" is not currently supported
    Status:  506 (At least one minifilter does not support bypass IO)
    Driver:  cmdGuard
    Reason:  The specified minifilter does not support bypass IO.
    Storage Type:   NVMe
    Storage Driver: Not BypassIo Compatible

If I uninstall Comodo it will then pass the direct storage requirments. Which going forward will soon be needed once developers start adding this to there software. I could do with it now with messing about in software in my spare time.

Is there a workaround available for this issue, or does anyone know if Comodo are aware of this problem with there software blocking important windows features going forward. (its not just Comodo most anti virus programs appear to be blocking direct storage API's at the moment, outside of windows built in virus protection.
