FsRtlCreateSectionForDataScan with/out SEC_FILE

sovaksovak Member Posts: 10


In the documentation of FsRlt/FltCreateSectionForDataScan there isnt much information regarding SEC_FILE flag. All I can find is "The file specified by the FileObject parameter is a mapped file." -> Can this function be used for anything other than files? . I dont see any difference with or without the flag - both works. So my question is, what is the flag for and will any lower filter see any difference when I use the flag compared to when its not used?
