Block device drivers respond to this I/O control code to return disk information.
On return, the DISK_INFOstructure parameters must be filled in with the following information:
|DISK_INFO_FLAG_MBR||The device has or needs a master boot record.|
|DISK_INFO_FLAG_CHS_UNCERTAIN||The device does not support CHS addressing; values for di_cylinders, di_heads, and/or di_sectorsmay be simulated, estimated, or not provided.|
|DISK_INFO_FLAG_UNFORMATTED||The device requires a low-level format; the FAT file system currently ignores this flag.|
|DISK_INFO_FLAG_PAGEABLE||The device supports demand paging; read and write requests are synchronous and do not involve any memory manager calls, loader operations, or thread switches.|
In Windows CE versions prior to 3.0, this code was called DISK_IOCTL_GETINFO.
