OK... I didn't see that function; It's like an extended version of=20
GetFileAttributes. I see it also has dwVolumeSerialNumber. Is that used=20
to verify unique filesystems? I think it would be good for all boxbackup

  platforms to include some sort of disk/filesystem ID or label to=20
verify that the right filesystem is there.
