FltIsVolumeWritable function

The FltIsVolumeWritable routine determines whether the disk device that corresponds to a volume or minifilter driver instance is writable.

Syntax

NTSTATUS FLTAPI FltIsVolumeWritable(
  PVOID    FltObject,
  PBOOLEAN IsWritable
);

Parameters

FltObject

An opaque pointer for the volume or instance. Be aware that the associated volume must be a local file system volume.

IsWritable

A pointer to a caller-allocated Boolean variable that receives TRUE if the volume is writable; FALSE otherwise.

Return Value

FltIsVolumeWritable returns STATUS_SUCCESS or an appropriate NTSTATUS value such as one of the following:
