VDS_FILE_SYSTEM_TYPE Enumeration

[Beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, the Virtual Disk Service COM interface is superseded by the Windows Storage Management API.]

Defines the set of valid types for a file system.

Syntax

typedef enum _VDS_FILE_SYSTEM_TYPE {
  VDS_FST_UNKNOWN,
  VDS_FST_RAW,
  VDS_FST_FAT,
  VDS_FST_FAT32,
  VDS_FST_NTFS,
  VDS_FST_CDFS,
  VDS_FST_UDF,
  VDS_FST_EXFAT,
  VDS_FST_CSVFS,
  VDS_FST_REFS
} VDS_FILE_SYSTEM_TYPE;

Constants

VDS_FST_UNKNOWN The file system is unknown. The IVdsVolumeMF::GetFileSystemProperties method returns this value in the VDS_FILE_SYSTEM_PROP structure for BitLocker-encrypted volumes.
VDS_FST_RAW The file system is raw.
VDS_FST_FAT The file system is file allocation table (FAT).
VDS_FST_FAT32 The file system is file allocation table for 32-bit computers (FAT32).
VDS_FST_NTFS The file system is the NT file system (NTFS).
VDS_FST_CDFS The file system is the CD-ROM file system (CDFS).
VDS_FST_UDF The file system is Universal Disk Format (UDF).
VDS_FST_EXFAT The file system is extended file allocation table (exFAT).

Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2003:  The VDS_FST_EXFAT file type value is not supported.

VDS_FST_CSVFS
VDS_FST_REFS

Remarks

The VDS_FILE_SYSTEM_PROPstructure includes a VDS_FILE_SYSTEM_TYPE value as a member to indicate an existing file system type.

Note  Additional constants might be added to the VDS_FILE_SYSTEM_TYPE enumeration in future Windows versions. For this reason, your application must be designed to gracefully handle an unrecognized VDS_FILE_SYSTEM_TYPE enumeration constant.
