StorageCharacteristics Property

The characteristic flags to create the virtual drive with. (Windows only).

Syntax

 cbmemdrive.getStorageCharacteristics([callback])
 cbmemdrive.setStorageCharacteristics( storageCharacteristics, [callback])

Default Value

16

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 getStorageCharacteristics([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 setStorageCharacteristics([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

The system, as well as other applications, use these flags to optimize their use of the virtual drive. This property should be set by OR'ing together zero or more of the following flags:

STGC_FLOPPY_DISKETTE0x00000001The storage is a floppy disk device.

This flag is not supported when StorageType is set to STGT_DISK_PNP.

STGC_READONLY_DEVICE0x00000002The storage is a read-only device.

STGC_WRITE_ONCE_MEDIA0x00000008The storage device's media can only be written to once.

This flag is not supported when StorageType is set to STGT_DISK_PNP.

STGC_REMOVABLE_MEDIA0x00000010The storage device's media is removable.

Users may remove the storage media from the virtual drive at any time. (Note that this flag does not indicate that the virtual drive itself is removable.)

STGC_AUTOCREATE_DRIVE_LETTER0x00002000The system should automatically create a drive letter for the storage device.

Deprecated: Include the STGMP_AUTOCREATE_DRIVE_LETTER flag in the value passed for the AddMountingPoint method's Flags parameter instead.

When this flag is present, the StorageGUID property must be set. This flag only works when StorageType is set to STGT_DISK_PNP.

STGC_SHOW_IN_EJECTION_TRAY0x00004000The storage device should be shown in the 'Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media' menu in the system notification area (system tray).

This flag only works when StorageType is set to STGT_DISK_PNP.

STGC_ALLOW_EJECTION0x00008000The storage device can be ejected.

Users may eject the virtual drive at any time. When the virtual drive is ejected, it is destroyed.

This flag only works when StorageType is set to STGT_DISK_PNP.

Note: This property cannot be changed after a virtual drive is created, and cannot be changed within events.

This property is not available at design time.
