CF_PIN_STATE enumeration (cfapi.h)

Pin states of a placeholder file or directory.

Syntax

typedef enum CF_PIN_STATE {
  CF_PIN_STATE_UNSPECIFIED = 0,
  CF_PIN_STATE_PINNED = 1,
  CF_PIN_STATE_UNPINNED = 2,
  CF_PIN_STATE_EXCLUDED = 3,
  CF_PIN_STATE_INHERIT = 4
} ;

Constants

 
CF_PIN_STATE_UNSPECIFIED
Value: 0
The platform can decide freely when the placeholder’s content needs to present or absent locally on the disk.
CF_PIN_STATE_PINNED
Value: 1
The sync provider will be notified to fetch the placeholder’s content asynchronously after the pin request is received by the platform. There is no guarantee that the placeholders to be pinned will be fully available locally after a CfSetPinState call completes successfully. However, the platform will fail any dehydration request on pinned placeholders.
CF_PIN_STATE_UNPINNED
Value: 2
The sync provider will be notified to dehydrate/invalidate the placeholder’s content on-disk asynchronously after the unpin request is received by the platform. There is no guarantee that the placeholders to be unpinned will be fully dehydrated after the API call completes successfully.
CF_PIN_STATE_EXCLUDED
Value: 3
the placeholder will never be synced to the cloud by the sync provider. This state can only be set by the sync provider.
CF_PIN_STATE_INHERIT
Value: 4
The platform treats it as if the caller performs a move operation on the placeholder and hence re-evaluates the placeholder’s pin state based on its parent’s pin state. See the Remarks section for an inheritance table.
