Does Windows Mobile 6.0 support file system filtering of Object Store (RAM)
and ROM?

Also it would be of great help to share a code snippet that calls
DeviceIOControl of sample FSDSPY in WM5.0.

Have a Great day

At this point in time there is no such thing as Windows Mobile 6.0. The next
version of Windows Mobile is not announced and any information on it is
subject to NDA.

WM5, which is based on CE 5.0 does not support filters on the object store,
even if it did there would be a problem of loading one dynamically after
boot since the filters are loaded BEFORE the filesystem is connected up.
However the object store is mounted as the root of the FS so you can't just
load a filter from the FS you are trying to load the filter for! Same goes
for FLASH systems on WM5 devices and for Windows CE 6.0 based devices as
well. So you should expect the same thing in the next release of Windows
Mobile whichever OS version it is built on.
