Dos Device Inspector

Product Overview

Dos Device Inspector is a small software utility to map Dos Device Symbolic Links to their native NT paths. Windows Object Manager uses these for physical hardware such as CDRoms, USB devices, Hard Drives etc. With this tool you’ll be able to see that the logical drive letter C:\ maps to \Device\HarddiskVolumeXxX along with many other interesting Dos Devices present in your system. Drivers that communicate with usermode will often define and create their own Dos Devices as well, they will be listed too.

This tool is geared towards developers that want quick device lookups or those that like to explore their machines for possible malware remnants.
