IOCTL_DISK_REASSIGN_BLOCKS control code

Maps defective blocks to new location on disk. This request instructs the device to reassign the bad block address to a good block from its spare-block pool.

Input Parameters

Parameters.DeviceIoControl.InputBufferLength in the I/O stack location of the IRP indicates the size, in bytes, of the buffer, which must be >= sizeof(REASSIGN_BLOCKS). Note that this structure contains a variable-sized array of block numbers. It is the caller's responsibility to make sure that the array of block numbers is sorted in ascending order.

Output Parameters
