May I suggest you ask your question by giving more detail about what you are trying to do and how you are having difficulty?

As stated here, it is impossible to answer your question.

Thank you.

I assume you mean FAT as in FAT12/16/32/VFAT, the old filesystem that has been superceded by NTFS?

Assuming you're going to do this from a Win32 application, the first step is deciding whether you want Win9x support, or only need to handle NT. For NT, direct disk access is easy, it's done with CreateFile using a special "filename" - all documented in the MSDN/PlatformSDK. Win9x is more complicated.

Then, there's the issue of reading/parsing the FAT. For this, you'll need a reference of the FAT system. Have a look at http://www.nondot.org/sabre/os/articles/FileSystems/ .

Once you get started, I'm sure people here are willing to answer more specific questions :-)
