FileSystemName Property

The name of the virtual filesystem.

Syntax

 cbmemdrive.getFileSystemName([callback])
 cbmemdrive.setFileSystemName( fileSystemName, [callback])

Default Value

"FAT32"

Callback

The 'callback' parameter specifies a function which will be called when the operation completes (or an error is encountered). If the 'callback' parameter is not specified, then the method will block and will not return until the operation completes (or an error is encountered).

The callback for the getFileSystemName([callback]) method is defined as:

function(err, data){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'data' is the value returned by the method.

The callback for the setFileSystemName([callback]) method is defined as:

function(err){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'err' has 2 properties which hold detailed information:

err.code
err.message

Remarks

This property specifies the name of the virtual filesystem. Windows, and some other applications, use this name to identify the filesystem.

In general, the filesystem name can be any reasonable string up to 10 characters in length. However, some versions of Windows, and some third-party programs, may behave differently when they encounter an unknown filesystem name (i.e., anything other than FAT, FAT32, exFAT, NTFS, etc.). Applications should keep this restriction in mind when choosing a filesystem name.

This property is set to FAT32 by default, which may cause some applications to fail when attempting to copy large (>4GB) files to and from the virtual drive. It is recommended that applications set this property to exFAT if such issues occur.

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

This property is not available at design time.
