Microsoft Direct Storage: vlflt blocking access

Hey Bit Defenders,

Having a problem getting Direct Storage to work. BD's VLFLT is blocking access.

Any ideas on how to get around that?

Thanks!

    First, let's try disabling VLFLT. To do this, open Bitdefender and go to Settings > Advanced > System. Under Virtualization-based security, uncheck the box next to Enable Virtualization-based security (VBS).

    Once you've disabled VLFLT, try restarting your computer and then launching a game that supports Direct Storage. If Direct Storage is now working, then you can leave VLFLT disabled.

    If Direct Storage is still not working after you've disabled VLFLT, then you may need to add an exception for Direct Storage in Bitdefender's firewall. To do this, open Bitdefender and go to Settings > Firewall > Applications and services. In the Applications and services list, find DirectStorage and click Add.

    Once you've added DirectStorage to the firewall exception list, try restarting your computer and then launching a game that supports Direct Storage. If Direct Storage is now working, then you should be good to go.
