NTMS_OPREQ_MOVEMEDIA
An application or RSM sends an operator request to move the specified medium to service a mount for offline media or to eject media to an offline library.

Note

The ntmsapi.h header defines NTMS_OPREQUESTINFORMATION as an alias which automatically selects the ANSI or Unicode version of this function based on the definition of the UNICODE preprocessor constant. Mixing usage of the encoding-neutral alias with code that not encoding-neutral can lead to mismatches that result in compilation or runtime errors. For more information, see Conventions for Function Prototypes.
