Is there any known issues with multiple instances of RawDisk running on the same PC? For example, if another application uses RawDisk driver as well but with different filename and/or service name?

Internally the RawDisk driver creates a device object with a predefined name (actually it's "\Device\ElRawDisk") in order to have communication with it from user mode. So only one instance of the driver will be successfully loaded.

"\Device\ElRawDisk" is the name of the control device object.
