GetVolumeGUID Method

Retrieves the volume GUID of the device targeted by a filesystem operation.


char* GetVolumeGUID();


This method can be called within events fired for filesystem operations to retrieve the volume GUID of the device targeted by the operation, returned in the Volume{xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx} format. If the query fails, this method returns empty string.

Volume GUIDs can be used to enumerate the mounting points of a device using the Windows API's GetVolumePathNamesForVolumeName function.

Note: This method can only be called within events.

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a String value; after it returns, call the GetLastErrorCode() method to obtain its result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message.
