Using windows console, it is possible to create empty file on cbfs mounted volume using this command:

Echo > "test|test.txt"

This command fail on other "standard" volume (C:, network drive, etc.)

Same command with other forbidden special char (ex :"?\*<>" etc.) fail, as expected.

We where able to create folder with '|' char in their name too.

I use a cbfs.sys 32bit driver V and C++ API, both on Windows XP pro SP2.

You application can report that such file exists in CBFS file structure, but such file won't be accessible from the OS. You can not use forbidden characters, this is OS restriction.

Sincerely yours
