Best way to go about Win32 calls for Disk Mangament in a Java application (Similar to Rescan Disk in MyComputer->Manage->disk Management->Rescan Disks)
Posted on 2004-09-21
I'm totally new to Windows API calls, but I need to create a Java Application that is similar to the Rescan Disk operation in Windows, MyComputer->Manage, right click Disk Managment->Rescan Disks. So basically I need to write a Java Application that will pick up on newly Mapped and Masked storage without having to shutdown the Host PC. I was wondering could anyone tell me the best way to approach to this by answering the below questions:
1) How do I call Win32 calls within my Java Application?
2) What type of Win32 calls do I have to use?
