UseReparsePoints Property

Whether the virtual filesystem supports reparse points.


int GetUseReparsePoints();
int SetUseReparsePoints(int bUseReparsePoints);
BOOL GetUseReparsePoints();
INT SetUseReparsePoints(BOOL bUseReparsePoints);

Default Value



This property specifies whether the virtual filesystem should indicate to the system that it supports reparse points.

If this property is enabled, the application must properly handle the SetReparsePoint, GetReparsePoint, and DeleteReparsePoint events in order for reparse points to function correctly.

Note that reparse points are an expected feature of the NTFS filesystem; if the application is identifying its virtual filesystem (via FileSystemName) as NTFS, supporting reparse points is recommended. Reparse point support is also expected by the NFS sharing components of the OS.

Please refer to the Reparse Points topic for more information.

Note: This property cannot be changed when Active is true, and cannot be changed within events.
