Need help with IOCTL_DISK_GET_DRIVE_LAYOUT_EX

Recommended Posts

ilko

Need to use DeviceIoControl and IOCTL_DISK_GET_DRIVE_LAYOUT_EX :

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa365174%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

Can't figure out how to create the structure in DllStructCreate, since it consist nested variable-sized arrays:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa364001%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

Reading the comments makes the confusion even bigger:

DRIVE_LAYOUT_INFORMATION_EX memory allocation

C99 Standard states that the last member of structure can be an array whose size is omitted.

DRIVE_LAYOUT_INFORMATION_EX is using this feathure, to call this control code correctly,

you cannot just declare a struct, should do something like this:

DWORD layout_size = sizeof(DRIVE_LAYOUT_INFORMATION_EX) + MAX_NUM_PARTITION * sizeof(PARTITION_INFORMATION_EX);

DRIVE_LAYOUT_INFORMATION_EX *disk_layout = (DRIVE_LAYOUT_INFORMATION_EX*) new char[layout_size];

MAX_NUM_PARTITION , maximum number of partitions on that disk.

How this could be done in AutoIt, some help please?

A quick thought have you tried looking at WinAPIEx by Yashied?

Yep, the first thing I did, there is _WinAPI_GetDriveGeometryEx, which is different with a different return structure.

Requires by Yashied.

A union in a structure occupies the size of it's larger member, thus the dword[26] and byte[36] elements for the MBR part to trap the larger space required for the GPT structures. Not fully tested, MBR might work :) and I don't have a GPT drive at hand to test it. Copied some of the code (esp. structures) from

For MBR it seems to works so

Edit: added GPT now also works

Edit2: runs with limited user privileges, Thanks Kafu

Awesome ;) , delivers the same result as my function does, thanks for this verification :). Had to change the createfile call on Win7 to

$hDrive = _WinAPI_CreateFile('.PHYSICALDRIVE0', 3, 0)

and... maybe my function delivers the GPT results too, can't test it ;)...

Awesome, thanks a lot guys, quite useful and a lot to learn from those examples. :)

Will test more later on and post, at first glance everything works as expected.

Thanks Kafu.

I did not know that it can work without admin rights :)

Have added the GPT informations

Upsa, it should be:

$hDrive = _WinAPI_CreateFile('.PHYSICALDRIVE0', 2, 0)

For _WinAPI_CreateFileEx() the corresponding flag is 3 = $OPEN_EXISTING, which is translated to 2 for the _WinAPI_CreateFile() function :) ...

"The dwDesiredAccess parameter can be zero, allowing the application to query device attributes without accessing a device. This is useful for an application to determine the size of a floppy disk drive and the formats it supports without requiring a floppy disk in a drive, for instance. It can also be used for reading statistics without requiring higher-level data read/write permission."
