Hi all,
I'm having some issues with the accessMask that is passed into the openfile callback. Upon opening the root folder of the mounted drive, the openfile call passes in an access mask for (0x80 & then 0x00100001). I've looked in the CreateFile api and I can't find what rights these correspond to.

For the other files that are enumerated, openfile gets called with 0x00120089 which has STANDARD_RIGHTS_READ | STANDARD_RIGHTS_WRITE access and this works.

I am however having issues with files that are readonly. I'm made sure that the attributes for the file is set as read-only, and that the getfileinfo callback returns the attributes including read-only. However openfile gets called with just 0x00120089 accessmask. I tried throwing an ECBFSError and also just returning, and neither approach works.
Any suggestions?

"read-only" is just the file attribute, which the application is safe to ignore. It's a leftover from old MS DOS and FAT12 times.

So you should expect requests to open the file in write mode even when your file has read-only attribute.

I believe, that you can report ERROR_FILE_READ_ONLY (#define ERROR_FILE_READ_ONLY 6009L) error code using ECBFSError and this should work.

Yeah, I should have updated this post sooner.
But throwing the ERR0R_FILE_READ_ONLY works fine.

Right. I think STANDARD_RIGHTS_READ AND STANDARD_RIGHTS_WRITE are set to same value as READ_CONTROL. Hence my initial assumption.

But the correct masks to check against are FILE_WRITE_DATA AND FILE_READ_DATA, (along with the ones u mentioned.)

For whomeever else that cares.
