Error 0x8000FFFF: Catastrophic failure on read-only virtual disk filesystem

Gova_GimerGova_Gimer Member - All Emails Posts: 43
When i mount virtual disk filesystem in read-only mode on empty directory,

and i create file/directory since explorer i have error 'Error 0x8000FFFF: Catastrophic failure'.

If virtual disk is read-only , i return it NTSTATUS STATUS_MEDIA_WRITE_PROTECTED if write disk is requested .

Thank.

    A few more questions:

    Is this a storport VD or class driver VD?
