Can normal applications like MS Word use files created within the SolFS storage just like normal files on the regular drive ? Will all the normal API calls like CreateFile, ReadFile, WriteFile, LockFile, UnlockFile, SetEndOfFile, SetFilePointer, CreateMapOfFile, MapViewOfFile, CloseHandle, DuplicateHandle, SetFileInformationByHandleEx, GetFileInformationByHandleEx etc with different sharing options or access permissions work nromally ?

Yes, using OS edition of SolFS. With OS Edition you create a virtual drive (or hidden mounting point, but the latter isn't supported by some applications), give it a drive letter and then the applications access the files via that drive letter.

This requires installation of the kernel-mode driver, though.

Sincerely yours
