LDM info

Hi all,
Is there any APIs/ IOCTLs through which I can get the
type of a volume("Simple", "Spanned", "Mirrored", "Stripped" or "RAID-
5") managed by LDM in Windows.

Regards
Anand

Re: LDM info

Hi,
I am aware of this, but they read the LDM database itself and have source code for it. I am lookgin for an API whic may not give me the type outrightly, but atleast let me infer the type of the volume from its output. I know to get the volume extents in each disk, but i can only infer a few types from it, not all.

thanks
Anand
