No. Java doesn't have APIs at that low a level. Java's APIs start on top of the existing file system. You'd have to do all the real work in native code.

can you tell me how i can do it?


This site isn't really suitable for such broad, "How do I write application X?" questions.

Why would you want to reinvent the wheel when there are already quite a few good virtual drive programs out there?
