Whats the best way, given a volume's device object, to get the Win32
drive letter representing that volume? I can think of a few ways, but they
are somewhat convoluted (involving maintaining a table of device object
names to symbolic link names and such) and I'm wondering if I'm missing a
simple function call, or something.
The Win2K DDK has 'RtlVolumeDeviceToDosName', but this function is
evidently not present in the NT4 DDK.

Thanks,
Joel
