equivalent function of GetVolumeInformation in WinRT RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I would like to find out File system name(eg.NTFS/FAT32/FAT) and File system flag (eg.FILE_READ_ONLY_VOLUME) for my application using windows store app.But i cannot use GetVolumeInformation(), so please suggest some equivalent or anyother functions which helps to dig out these two parameters from my Harddisk.

  • I don't believe there is a way to do this from a Windows Store app, only from a desktop app.

    Windows Store apps are generally restricted from administration type roles and privileges do not usually deal directly with the file system.
