I'm using your Mapper example for Callback Filesystem.
I would like it to mount a location as a 'Network Drive' not as a 'Removable Disk'.

I've been trying:
g_CbFs.AddMountingPoint(MountingPoint, CBFS_SYMLINK_NETWORK, NULL);
but I get the error:
The parameter is incorrect.

I feel like there is more to this than changing one line of mappers code but I just thought I'd ask!

Hi Gavin,

You can use mounting points with any type of virtual disks. It's like as you insert a USB flash drive (which is a removable local disk), share it, and access the drive via a UNC path.

I.e. create a CBFS virtual disk with, for example, DiskType = stDisk and StorageCharacteristics = scRemovable. Then call
AddMountingPoint("X:;server_name;share_name", CBFS_SYMLINK_NETWORK, NULL);

It seems the problem in your case is that you pass the first parameter in incorrect format. For details see https://www.eldos.com/documentation/cb...oints.html

I should of read the documentation more thoroughly.
