STORAGE_DEVICE_NUMBER structure (winioctl.h)

Contains information about a device. This structure is used by the IOCTL_STORAGE_GET_DEVICE_NUMBER control code.

Syntax

typedef struct _STORAGE_DEVICE_NUMBER {
  DEVICE_TYPE DeviceType;
  DWORD       DeviceNumber;
  DWORD       PartitionNumber;
} STORAGE_DEVICE_NUMBER, *PSTORAGE_DEVICE_NUMBER;
