How to create a custom storage plug-in

File Classification Infrastructure (FCI) uses storage plug-ins or modules to store classification properties files. A few modules are provided by the system, including a plug-in to store properties in Office files. If properties need to be stored within other file types, a custom storage plug-in can be created.

Storage modules are queried when FCI reads properties for a file as well as when it writes properties for a file. Each plug-in can indicate which file extensions it can support.

For more developer information, see Developing FCI Pipeline Modules.

For more configuration information about properties, rules, and scheduling, see the TechNet article, Working with File Classification.


A storage module code sample is not included in the Windows Server 2012 SDK.
