Attaching to FAT File System

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
Hello, I am developing a File System Filter Driver, and I'm having
problems for checking accesses to the floppy drive. I know WNT loads the
FAT File System Driver when the first access to the floppy is made. And to
get control when this happens I attach to the FAT recognizer. But on
completion of what request to the recognizer do I have to attach (on
completion to MOUNT_VOLUME or LOAD_FILE_SYSTEM) and what device do I have
to attach (is it the device named "\FAT")?
Thanx in advance.

    You need to register with IoRegisterFsRegistrationChange.
    You will receive a call to this function when a new file system is mounted.

    Inaki.
