Does SolFS support NTFS as well?
At a sample, I saw a FAT32 example.

Best regards,

SolFS Driver Edition is based on SolFS file system. It doesn't support other file systems. You can set a custom file system name, that's true, but some OS functions and Windows applications will work only if the file system is either FAT32 or NTFS, so we set the name to FAT32 (to set it to NTFS we would need to support NT file security, which SolFS doesn't support natively at the moment).

But ... did you mean SolFS or Callback File System?
With Callback File System the situation is very similar. You build a custom file system and you can set any custom name, but some things will work only if the name is set to FAT32 or NTFS. You can use NTFS name if you properly implement security-related callbacks.

I am not sure that I understand your question. Assuming that you ask about Callback File System (for which you have a license), you have several samples shipped with the installation. And these samples cover all functionality except security checks. We plan to add some how-to or sample or something about this to CBFS. We just have too much work to have already done in one day.
