VDS Interfaces

[Beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, the Virtual Disk Service COM interface is superseded by the Windows Storage Management API.]

Virtual Disk Service (VDS) objects provide interfaces that expose methods for querying, configuring, and maintaining storage devices.

InterfaceDescription
IEnumVdsObject Enumerates through a set of VDS objects of a given type.
IVdsAdmin Registers a provider with VDS.
