To clarify, file-system files and directories in a mounted file system
on such as device are akin to Unix S_IFREG and S_IFDIR. Their file
type is FILE_TYPE_DISK, but this is simply based on the underlying
device type. If it's a file-system file, then GetFileAttributesW will
succeed. FILE_TYPE_DISK is only akin to S_IFBLK when we open a volume
or disk device directly, such as "//./C:" or "//./PhysicalDrive0".
