If I remove the comments below and comment out the call to CRawDisk::Open, I am able to get a valid handle. As far as I can tell the driver is installed correctly. I've also tried replacing the "\\.\PhysicalDrive0" string with "\\.\C:" with no change. I'm compiling in VS2005. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


/*file = CreateFile(_TEXT("\\\\.\\PhysicalDrive0"),
  accessMode, shareMode, NULL, OPEN_EXISTING, 0, NULL);*/

file = CRawDisk::Open(_TEXT("\\\\.\\PhysicalDrive0"), GENERIC_WRITE | GENERIC_READ, NULL);

  cout << "error: invalid handle.\n";
} else {
  cout << "valid handle.\n";

Hello dear friends,

I just want to start using Rawdisk and I really need to use it. Could you please help me and give me some information about it. For example, I will be really thankful if you give me a 5-line sample program or introduce a tutorial.

Thank you very much for your help.

Best regards,

You need to purchase a license *before* you can start using RawDisk. Evaluation version is not available for this product. Please see information on the order page.
