Q: How is the flash memory used by Windows CE?

The CE bootloader divides flash memory into two partitions. The first partition stores the CE image and isn't available to the user. The second partition appears in CE as the "FlashFX Disk" folder off the root of the CE file system. You can read and write to it using standard file system calls and navigate through it with Windows Explorer. If you place an application in the Startup folder of the flash disk, that application will execute when CE boots.

These partitions are currently variable in size. The first partition is the size of the CE image plus 1 or 2MB, depending on the product. The second partition can be up to the size of the remaining flash on your system.

The CE Memory Map gives a helpful picture of how flash is partitioned.
