When using the CallbackFS to host a drive we are having an issue where the system requests to create a file called 'thumbs.db:encryptable' which I understand is an alternate datastream object but I was under the impression that alternate datastreams should not be forwarded by the driver, is this correct? If not, how should these datastreams be dealt with?


After creating an Image in an empty folder and switching to thumbnail view, CbFsCreateFile is called for the file ‘Thumbs.db:encryptable’

It's our mistake. Sorry. If you don't set a pointer to the CbFsEnumerateNamedStreamsEvent then the alternate data streams must be processed internally by the driver (it simply completes such request with STATUS_NOT_IMPLEMENTED). But there is a problem here. In the following build it will be fixed. Now for such requests (i.e. for Create('thumbs.db:encryptable') etc.) you can return the ERROR_NOT_IMPLEMENTED error.
