Querying a mapped drive volume object

slipknothoudinislipknothoudini Member Posts: 1

I am trying to use ZwQueryVolumeInformation to gather information on a volume. To get the handle required to pass into ZwQueryVolumeInformation, I am calling ZwOpenFile with FILE_NON_DIRECTORY_FILE. Here is my code exerpt:

PHANDLE handle = NULL;
OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES objectAttributes;
IO_STATUS_BLOCK iosb;
NTSTATUS status;

InitializeObjectAttribute(&objectAttributes, &gVolumePath, OBJ_CASE_INSENSITIVE | OBJ_KERNEL_HANDLE, NULL, NULL);
status = ZwOpenFile(handle, FILE_GENERIC_READ, &objectAttributes, &iosb, FILE_SHARE_READ, FILE_NON_DIRECTORY_FILE);
...
gVolumePath is a UNICODE_STRING "Mup" (the object name of the mapped drive I am trying to query
The status comes back as -1073741767 (Object Path Component was not a directory object). I am not entirely sure why I am getting this error since I am using FILE_NON_DIRECTORY_FILE.

    Is gVolumePath = "\Device\Mup" or "Mup"? It should be "\Device\Mup".
    Also, the sample code you sent has a bug: You need to define the handle as HANDLE (not PHANDLE) and then pass &handle to ZwOpenFile.
