Is it possible to map the whole drive to the virtual drive..?
Can the whole My Computer(special folder) be mapped to the virtual drive..?

Sure, it's possible.

You can map anything, and it's up to you how to represent certain structure as a drive. However, you need to have a good understanding of shell namespace in order to map "My Computer" as a drive, because many namespace parts are handled via interfaces by different shell extensions. But in general I don't see a problem with such mapping (besides the time needed to implement this functionality).

2 scenarios

1. Win Xp and FAT32 drives
Able to map all the drives.

2. Win Vista with NTFS drive(only C:)
Not able to map C: to Virtual Drive. "Access Denied". How can I get rid of this?

Please provide more details about what you are doing. Callback File System is not a mapper tool, but an SDK where you write code. So you need to look for the problem in the code.
