HANDLE_OPTIONS enumeration (windowsstoragecom.h)

Defines the flags of the file handle.

Syntax

typedef enum HANDLE_OPTIONS {
  HO_NONE = 0,
  HO_OPEN_REQUIRING_OPLOCK = 0x40000,
  HO_DELETE_ON_CLOSE = 0x4000000,
  HO_SEQUENTIAL_SCAN = 0x8000000,
  HO_RANDOM_ACCESS = 0x10000000,
  HO_NO_BUFFERING = 0x20000000,
  HO_OVERLAPPED = 0x40000000,
  HO_WRITE_THROUGH = 0x80000000
} ;

Constants

 
HO_NONE
Value: 0
None.
HO_OPEN_REQUIRING_OPLOCK
Value: 0x40000
This value is for internal use only.
HO_DELETE_ON_CLOSE
Value: 0x4000000
The file is to be deleted immediately after this handle is closed.
HO_SEQUENTIAL_SCAN
Value: 0x8000000
Access is intended to be sequential from beginning to end. The system can use this as a hint to optimize file caching.
For additional information, see Caching Behavior.
HO_RANDOM_ACCESS
Value: 0x10000000
Access is intended to be random. The system can use this as a hint to optimize file caching.
For more information, see Caching Behavior.
HO_NO_BUFFERING
Value: 0x20000000
The file is being opened with no system caching for data reads and writes. This flag does not affect hard disk caching or memory mapped files.
There are strict requirements for successfully working with files opened with this flag. For details see File Buffering.
HO_OVERLAPPED
Value: 0x40000000
The file is being opened or created for asynchronous I/O.
For information about considerations when using a file handle created with this flag, see Synchronous and Asynchronous I/O Handles.
HO_WRITE_THROUGH
Value: 0x80000000
Write operations will not go through any intermediate cache, they will go directly to disk.
For additional information, see Caching Behavior.
