How do I format a partition as a CBFS Storage vault?

The CBDrive component allows you to format a physical storage volume or partition as a CBFS Storage vault. To accomplish this task, you can follow these steps:

  1. If desired, configure settings to use when formatting using the PageSize, Logo, VaultEncryption, and VaultPassword properties.
  2. Call the FormatVolume method, passing it the name of the physical storage volume or partition.
  3. If the Progress event is implemented, you'll receive notifications as formatting operation runs. Note that formatting a large volume can take some time.
  4. Once the formatting process is complete, you'll be able to open the physical volume or partition like any other vault using the OpenVolume method.
