[Microsoft strongly recommends developers utilize alternative means to achieve your application’s needs. Many scenarios that TxF was developed for can be achieved through simpler and more readily available techniques. Furthermore, TxF may not be available in future versions of Microsoft Windows. For more information, and alternatives to TxF, please see Alternatives to using Transactional NTFS.]
Retrieves file system attributes for a specified file or directory as a transacted operation.
BOOL GetFileAttributesTransactedA( LPCSTR lpFileName, GET_FILEEX_INFO_LEVELS fInfoLevelId, LPVOID lpFileInformation, HANDLE hTransaction );
The name of the file or directory.
In the ANSI version of this function, the name is limited to MAX_PATH characters. To extend this limit to 32,767 wide characters, call the Unicode version of the function and prepend "\?" to the path. For more information, see Naming a File.
The file or directory must reside on the local computer; otherwise, the function fails and the last error code is set to ERROR_TRANSACTIONS_UNSUPPORTED_REMOTE.
The level of attribute information to retrieve.
This parameter can be the following value from the GET_FILEEX_INFO_LEVELS enumeration.
||The lpFileInformation parameter is a WIN32_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DATA structure.|
A pointer to a buffer that receives the attribute information.
The type of attribute information that is stored into this buffer is determined by the value of fInfoLevelId. If the fInfoLevelId parameter is GetFileExInfoStandard then this parameter points to a WIN32_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DATA structure
A handle to the transaction. This handle is returned by the CreateTransaction function.
If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.
If the function fails, the return value is zero (0). To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
When GetFileAttributesTransacted is called on a directory that is a mounted folder, it returns the attributes of the directory, not those of the root directory in the volume that the mounted folder associates with the directory. To obtain the file attributes of the associated volume, call GetVolumeNameForVolumeMountPoint to obtain the name of the associated volume. Then use the resulting name in a call to GetFileAttributesTransacted. The results are the attributes of the root directory on the associated volume.
In Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, this function is supported by the following technologies.
|Server Message Block (SMB) 3.0 protocol||No|
|SMB 3.0 Transparent Failover (TFO)||No|
|SMB 3.0 with Scale-out File Shares (SO)||No|
|Cluster Shared Volume File System (CsvFS)||No|
|Resilient File System (ReFS)||No|
SMB 3.0 does not support TxF.
Symbolic links: If the path points to a symbolic link, the function returns attributes for the symbolic link.
|Minimum supported client||Windows Vista [desktop apps only]|
