IoCreateFileEx and FltCreateFileEx similarities

Mauro_LeggieriMauro_Leggieri Member Posts: 90

Hi, calling FltCreateFileEx with a given FLT_INSTANCE is the same than using FltGetVolumeFromInstance then FltGetDeviceObject and using that DEVICE_OBJECT in a call to IoCreateFileEx or IoCreateFileSpecifyDeviceObjectHint?

I want to merge/refactor some common code and was asking myself if the above applies.

Thanks,
Mauro.
