STORAGE_HOTPLUG_INFO structure

The STORAGE_HOTPLUG_INFO structure provides hotplug information for a device.

Syntax


typedef struct _STORAGE_HOTPLUG_INFO {
  ULONG   Size;
  BOOLEAN MediaRemovable;
  BOOLEAN MediaHotplug;
  BOOLEAN DeviceHotplug;
  BOOLEAN WriteCacheEnableOverride;
} STORAGE_HOTPLUG_INFO, *PSTORAGE_HOTPLUG_INFO;

Members

Size

Indicates the size, in bytes, of this structure.

MediaRemovable

Specifies whether the media is removable. If set to a nonzero value, the device media is removable. If set to zero, the device media is not removable.

MediaHotplug

Specifies whether the media is lockable. If set to a nonzero value, the device media is not lockable. If set to zero, the device media is lockable.

DeviceHotplug

Specifies whether the device is a hotplug device. If set to a nonzero value, the device is a hotplug device. If set to zero, the device is not a hotplug device.

WriteCacheEnableOverride

Do not use; set the value to NULL.

Remarks

The value of the Size member also identifies the version of this structure. New members will be added to this structure in the future. If the value of the Size member is sizeof(STORAGE_HOTPLUG_INFO), the current version of the structure is the same as the version you compiled with. If the value is not sizeof(STORAGE_HOTPLUG_INFO), the current version contains additional members.

Microsoft Windows XP includes support for hotplug devices. A hotplug device refers to a device whose RemovalPolicy value displayed in the Device Manager is ExpectSurpriseRemoval. To query whether a particular device is a hotplug device, use the IOCTL_STORAGE_GET_HOTPLUG_INFO request. To set the hotplug properties of a device, use the IOCTL_STORAGE_SET_HOTPLUG_INFO request.

In the case of the IOCTL_STORAGE_SET_HOTPLUG_INFO request, the DeviceHotplug member of the STORAGE_HOTPLUG_INFO structure determines what action is taken. If the value of that member is nonzero, the value for the device's removal policy in the registry is set to ExpectSurpriseRemoval and all levels of caching are disabled. If the value of DeviceHotplug is zero, the removal policy is set to ExpectOrderlyRemoval, and caching may be selectively enabled.
