Add a virtual storage card or disk (additional) other than HDD in Virtual PC VM x86 WINCE7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    How can i add a virtual storage card/disk with specific file system type that gets mounted on the device and can be viewed and used ?


    My plan is to filter file system specific operations on this virtual storage card/disk similar to a USB storage or memory card on an actual physical device.

    I am looking for exact steps and platform.reg changes or any other configurations that might achieve this.

    Requirements: I want to write a file system filter using fsdmanager where in I can filter only specific operations like create,delete,rename,move etc. on this device attached to virtual machine


    Environment: WINCE7 x86 Virtual PC Windows 7 32-bit  Visual Studio 2008 with Platform Builder.

    Cheers Manu

  • If RAM drive is ok for your purpose you can have a look at this:

    Ramdisk sources can be found in WICE700


    Hope this help.

  • Thanks Alexey.

    I will try it out. But on a side note just to better my understanding here from WINCE perspective.

    The above link on storage manager mentions that we can't filter Object Store and ROM file system.

    Does it change anything in terms of adding this new ram disk file system and filtering using filter manager driver.

    Cheers Manu
