Why Choose CBFS Connect over Dokan and Dokany?
About CBFS Connect
CBFS Connect is a software development toolkit that allows you to present various data sources as the files and directories of a local virtual drive, regardless of where the actual data is kept—be it in in files, in database records, in memory, or elsewhere. CBFS Connect consists of a system-level driver and a user mode API component. You only have to write user mode code, CBFS Connect's system driver takes care of all of the lower-level hassles.
