FILE_ID_EXTD_DIR_INFO structure

Contains identification information for a file. This structure is returned from the GetFileInformationByHandleEx function when FileIdExtdDirectoryInfo (0x13) or FileIdExtdDirectoryRestartInfo (0x14) is passed in the FileInformationClass parameter.

Members

NextEntryOffset

The offset for the next FILE_ID_EXTD_DIR_INFO structure that is returned. Contains zero (0) if no other entries follow this one.

FileIndex

The byte offset of the file within the parent directory. This member is undefined for file systems, such as NTFS, in which the position of a file within the parent directory is not fixed and can be changed at any time to maintain sort order.

CreationTime

The time that the file was created.

LastAccessTime

The time that the file was last accessed.

LastWriteTime

The time that the file was last written to.

ChangeTime

The time that the file was last changed.

EndOfFile

The absolute new end-of-file position as a byte offset from the start of the file to the end of the file. Because this value is zero-based, it actually refers to the first free byte in the file. In other words, EndOfFile is the offset to the byte that immediately follows the last valid byte in the file.

AllocationSize

The number of bytes that are allocated for the file. This value is usually a multiple of the sector or cluster size of the underlying physical device.

FileAttributes

The file attributes. This member can be any valid combination of the following attributes:

ValueMeaning
FILE_ATTRIBUTE_ARCHIVE
32 (0x20)

A file or directory that is an archive file or directory. Applications typically use this attribute to mark files for backup or removal . 

FILE_ATTRIBUTE_COMPRESSED
2048 (0x800)

A file or directory that is compressed. For a file, all of the data in the file is compressed. For a directory, compression is the default for newly created files and subdirectories.

FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DEVICE
64 (0x40)

This value is reserved for system use.

FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECTORY
16 (0x10)

The handle that identifies a directory.

FILE_ATTRIBUTE_ENCRYPTED
16384 (0x4000)

A file or directory that is encrypted. For a file, all data streams in the file are encrypted. For a directory, encryption is the default for newly created files and subdirectories.

FILE_ATTRIBUTE_HIDDEN
2 (0x2)

The file or directory is hidden. It is not included in an ordinary directory listing.

FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL
128 (0x80)

A file that does not have other attributes set. This attribute is valid only when used alone.

FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NOT_CONTENT_INDEXED
8192 (0x2000)

The file or directory is not to be indexed by the content indexing service.

FILE_ATTRIBUTE_OFFLINE
4096 (0x1000)

The data of a file is not available immediately. This attribute indicates that the file data is physically moved to offline storage. This attribute is used by Remote Storage, which is the hierarchical storage management software. Applications should not arbitrarily change this attribute.

FILE_ATTRIBUTE_READONLY
1 (0x1)

A file that is read-only. Applications can read the file, but cannot write to it or delete it. This attribute is not honored on directories. For more information, see You cannot view or change the Read-only or the System attributes of folders in Windows Server 2003, in Windows XP, in Windows Vista or in Windows 7.

FILE_ATTRIBUTE_REPARSE_POINT
1024 (0x400)

A file or directory that has an associated reparse point, or a file that is a symbolic link.

FILE_ATTRIBUTE_SPARSE_FILE
512 (0x200)

A file that is a sparse file.

FILE_ATTRIBUTE_SYSTEM
4 (0x4)

A file or directory that the operating system uses a part of, or uses exclusively.

FILE_ATTRIBUTE_TEMPORARY
256 (0x100)

A file that is being used for temporary storage. File systems avoid writing data back to mass storage if sufficient cache memory is available, because typically, an application deletes a temporary file after the handle is closed. In that scenario, the system can entirely avoid writing the data. Otherwise, the data is written after the handle is closed.

FILE_ATTRIBUTE_VIRTUAL
65536 (0x10000)

This value is reserved for system use.

 

FileNameLength

The length of the file name.

EaSize

The size of the extended attributes for the file.

ReparsePointTag

If the FileAttributes member includes the FILE_ATTRIBUTE_REPARSE_POINT attribute, this member specifies the reparse point tag.

Otherwise, this value is undefined and should not be used.

For more information see Reparse Point Tags.

IO_REPARSE_TAG_CSV (0x80000009)
IO_REPARSE_TAG_DEDUP (0x80000013)
IO_REPARSE_TAG_DFS (0x8000000A)
IO_REPARSE_TAG_DFSR (0x80000012)
IO_REPARSE_TAG_HSM (0xC0000004)
IO_REPARSE_TAG_HSM2 (0x80000006)
IO_REPARSE_TAG_MOUNT_POINT (0xA0000003)
IO_REPARSE_TAG_NFS (0x80000014)
IO_REPARSE_TAG_SIS (0x80000007)
IO_REPARSE_TAG_SYMLINK (0xA000000C)
IO_REPARSE_TAG_WIM (0x80000008)
FileId

The file ID.

FileName

The first character of the file name string. This is followed in memory by the remainder of the string.

Requirements

Minimum supported client

None supported

Minimum supported server

Windows Server 2012 [desktop apps only]

Header

WinBase.h (include Windows.h)
