Daily Blog #179: Artifacts from alternative file system drivers on NTFS Part 3

Hello Reader,
          In the two prior posts in this series we've examined the characteristics of a POSIX file name made by the linux ntfs-3g driver and the POSIX file names we should expect to see in a normal windows system. Today we are going to focus on the win32 api's that allow file creation to see which would allow a POSIX file name to be created in the first place.

There are three main functions exposed by the win32 api for file creation:
 This function is the main function for opening and creating a file on the disk or for accessing a device such as COM1 or a physical drive. Createfile has support for POSIX naming conventions by passing in the 'FILE_FLAG_POSIX_SEMANTICS' flag in the optional dwFlagsAndAttributes field when creating a file. What is interesting is that this flag when set does not actually create a POSIX namespace file name attribute.
 This function appears to be related to Windows Store based win 8 apps that operate within sandboxed environments. There is no stated POSIX support which is interesting. This means I need to test to see what Win8 default files are POSIX.
CreateFileTransacted support the same methods as CreateFile, including POSIX, but creates a transactional NTFS stream that file resides in until the transaction is committed.  We are doing research into Transactional NTFS and plan to write more about this later. Interesting to note that this article begins with a warning about the possible deprecation of this functionality in the future.
So in my current testing I cannot find a win32 api that creates a POSIX filespace filename attribute. Here is my perl code for calling into the win32 api and createfile:
 #!/usr/bin/perl -w

use Win32API::File qw( :ALL );

my $hDisk= Win32API::File::CreateFile( "//./H:/\$PosixTesTingAgain", GENERIC_ALL(),
I've tried this with a couple variations on file name conventions to force a POSIX only compatible name, but then it just fails. I'm not done yet though and will continue trying to find a function that will allow this namespace to be attributed within windows. 
Why? It's important to understand whats possible so we can determine if a user program could ever create a POSIX file name. If we can't, that is a great evidence point in supporting whether a file was created by the linux ntfs-3g driver or windows.
