Why Choose CBFS Connect over Dokan and Dokany?

About CBFS Connect

CBFS Connect is a software component (library) that enables you to present various data as the files and directories of a local virtual disk. Regardless of where the actual data are kept -- in files, in database records, in memory, or elsewhere -- they will be treated as if they comprised a single file system. CBFS Connect consists of a system-level driver and a user-mode API. You write only user-mode code, leaving all the kernel hassles for CBFS Connect to solve.

Why Use CBFS Connect?

With hundreds of clients and millions of deployments, CBFS Connect is the trusted SDK for virtualized Windows file systems.

  • Technology you can rely on: CBFS Connect was designed by professional software developers working in a well-established business, and it was designed with reliability and business suitability in mind. CBFS Connect is maintained, supported, and regularly updated to work flawlessly with the latest versions of Windows.
  • Windows-oriented architecture: Designed for Windows, CBFS Connect surpasses SDKs based on FUSE -- but, CBFS Connect does have a FUSE interface enabling ports to Windows. With a comprehensive implementation of the Windows file system, CBFS Connect is the only SDK able to provide enterprise-grade solutions, from integrations with legacy applications to new applications innovating with nontraditional data sources.
