FSCTL_FIND_FILES_BY_SID control code

Searches a directory for a file whose creator owner matches the specified SID.

To perform this operation, call the DeviceIoControl function with the following parameters.



BOOL 
WINAPI 
DeviceIoControl(
  (HANDLE) hDevice,            // handle to volume
  FSCTL_FIND_FILES_BY_SID,     // dwIoControlCode
  (LPVOID) lpInBuffer,         // input buffer
  (DWORD) nInBufferSize,       // size of input buffer
  (LPVOID) lpOutBuffer,        // output buffer
  (DWORD) nOutBufferSize,      // size of output buffer
  (LPDWORD) lpBytesReturned,   // number of bytes returned
  (LPOVERLAPPED) lpOverlapped  // OVERLAPPED structure
);

Parameters

hDevice

A handle to the directory to be searched. To retrieve the handle, call the CreateFile function.

dwIoControlCode

The control code for the operation. Use FSCTL_FIND_FILES_BY_SID for this operation.

lpInBuffer

A pointer to the input buffer, a FIND_BY_SID_DATA structure.

nInBufferSize

The size of the input buffer, in bytes.

lpOutBuffer

A pointer to an array of quad-aligned FIND_BY_SID_OUTPUT structures that contain the fully qualified path names for each file.

nOutBufferSize

The size of the output buffer, in bytes.

lpBytesReturned

A pointer to a variable that receives the size of the data stored in the output buffer, in bytes.

If the output buffer is too small to receive any data, the call fails, GetLastError returns ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER, and lpBytesReturned is zero.

If the output buffer is too small to hold all of the data but can hold some entries, some drivers will return as much data as fits. In this case, the call fails, GetLastError returns ERROR_MORE_DATA, and lpBytesReturned indicates the amount of data received. Your application should call DeviceIoControl again with the same operation, specifying a new starting point.

If lpOverlapped is NULL, lpBytesReturned cannot be NULL. Even when an operation returns no output data and lpOutBuffer is NULL, DeviceIoControl makes use of lpBytesReturned. After such an operation, the value of lpBytesReturned is meaningless.

If lpOverlapped is not NULL, lpBytesReturned can be NULL. If this parameter is not NULL and the operation returns data, lpBytesReturned is meaningless until the overlapped operation has completed. To retrieve the number of bytes returned, call GetOverlappedResult. If hDevice is associated with an I/O completion port, you can retrieve the number of bytes returned by calling GetQueuedCompletionStatus.

lpOverlapped

A pointer to an OVERLAPPED structure.

If hDevice was opened without specifying FILE_FLAG_OVERLAPPED, lpOverlapped is ignored.

If hDevice was opened with the FILE_FLAG_OVERLAPPED flag, the operation is performed as an overlapped (asynchronous) operation. In this case, lpOverlapped must point to a valid OVERLAPPED structure that contains a handle to an event object. Otherwise, the function fails in unpredictable ways.

For overlapped operations, DeviceIoControl returns immediately, and the event object is signaled when the operation has been completed. Otherwise, the function does not return until the operation has been completed or an error occurs.

Return value

If the operation completes successfully, DeviceIoControl returns a nonzero value.

If the operation fails or is pending, DeviceIoControl returns an zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

Remarks

This control code requires the use of disk quotas on the volume.
