IVdsDrive2::GetProperties2 method (vdshwprv.h)

[Beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, the Virtual Disk Service COM interface is superseded by the Windows Storage Management API.]

Returns the properties of a drive object.


HRESULT GetProperties2(
  [out] VDS_DRIVE_PROP2 *pDriveProp2


[out] pDriveProp2

The address of the VDS_DRIVE_PROP2 structure allocated and passed in by the caller. VDS allocates memory for the pwszFriendlyName and pwszIdentification member strings. Callers must free the strings by using the CoTaskMemFree function. This parameter is required and cannot be NULL.

Return value

This method can return standard HRESULT values, such as E_INVALIDARG or E_OUTOFMEMORY, and VDS-specific return values. It can also return converted system error codes using the HRESULT_FROM_WIN32 macro. Errors can originate from VDS itself or from the underlying VDS provider that is being used.


This method must return zero (S_OK) to indicate success, or an implementation-specific nonzero error code to indicate failure.
