    Implementing a virtual drive


    I want to implement a virtual drive in C++.
    I can handle the part of administrating the drive, but what i need is how to "register" my drive in Windows, so that Windows will "see" it as a drive.
    Also I will want to catch the event when from a phisical drive the user will want to copy/move files to my virtual drive.

    Can you please help me? Where can I find documentation? Some basic ideas?

    Thank you,

    you need to use the windows DDK to create virtual drives, i have just installed my coppy, you can get it free from microsoft (you have to pay postage though.)

    Have you had any luck with this? From what I've read, you could create a "Network Provider" (a .dll that implements the Network Provider API). I'm considering doing it that way for a project of mine, but would like to know how the virtual drive method is working for you.
