I test with CallbackFileSystem BETA 2 and VB.NET.

What is the right event to display data in a virtual-disk, when I dread data from a database?
At the moment I use CbFsEnumerateDirectory. When I use this event I point to a empty directory, which I can't use for my database.

How can I mount da database and display all data from e.g. an array?

Frankly speaking, I don't understand your question. It's your (as a developer) job to decide, how to represent the database as a file system.

ok I should explain my problem a bit more :)

I want to integrate data from a database with CallbackFileSystem in a virtual-harddisk. I have in my program some data in an array (dataset, tableobject or whatelese...).

I will now display for example 10 rows of a table as files. The 10 rows have an unique id and should displayed so: 000001.txt, 000002.txt, 000002.txt and so on.

What event I can use for displaying my data? At the moment I use CbFsEnumerateDirctory. I use the event so:

Private Sub CbFsEnumerateDirectory( _
ByVal sender As CallbackFileSystem, _
ByVal DirectoryInfo As CbFsFileInfo, _
ByRef EnumerationContext As IntPtr, _
ByVal Mask As String, _
ByVal Index As Integer, _
ByVal Restart As Boolean, _
ByRef FileFound As Boolean, _
ByRef FileName As String, _
ByRef CreationTime As DateTime, _
ByRef LastAccessTime As DateTime, _
ByRef LastWriteTime As DateTime, _
ByRef EndOfFile As Long, _
ByRef AllocationSize As Long, _
ByRef FileAttributes As UInteger _

When I get the data from a database, I'll have no mRootPath to a directory.

Is there an example who I can display such data in CallbackFileSystem (without an physical directory)?

I hope this explains my problem.

Thanks for your help,

After you create a storage, you add one or more mounting points. In all cases those mounting points are seen by the operating system as a disk with it's own root directory.
CBFS will call OnEnumerateDirectory to get the contents of this directory. You can report your records as files in the root directory.
