The CurrentStatus property is a read-only property. When queried, this property will return a value that indicates whether Windows Disk Protection is active or passive. There are two possible values:

Windows Disk Protection is in an active state (WDP_ACTIVE) if it is actively caching changes. Windows Disk Protection is in a passive state (WDP_PASSIVE) if changes can be saved directly to the hard disk without using the cache file as temporary storage when Windows Disk Protection is turned on.

Please note that the passive state (WDP_PASSIVE) is not a user-selectable or writable state available through the Windows SteadyState user interface, but is used internally by the Windows SteadyState application. Typically, the value of this property will be WDP_ACTIVE.
