Return value

Returns S_OK if successful, or an error value otherwise.


When a share root or directory tree is suspended, all directories and files contained in the share or directory or in any subfolders are suspended as well. This means that both directories and files may be suspended. Note that a directory can be suspended directly (if it is the root of the share or directory tree) or indirectly (if it is one of the items contained in the share or directory tree).
