I'm using a software to mount a FTP as a windows hard drive through SSH ( It kind of like using fuse on linux, but for Windows.

The problem is that is_writeable('E:\mulated\Drive\folder') always returns false, although I can use readdir('E:\mulated\Drive\folder') to list file/folder, and file_get/put_contents() to read/write on files.

It's not really serious once you know it, but it's really annoying when using third-party library that refuse to works on these paths.

Test script:
// First mount any FTP via DokanSSH FS as a Windows Drive, 
// and assign it to the E: letter.
// Create a folder E:\test, and a file E:\test\file.txt

echo file_get_contents('E:\test\file.txt'); //Works.

var_dump(is_readable('E:\test\file.txt')); // bool(false)

Expected result:
is_readable('E:\test\file.txt') should return true, as the file is readable, since file_get_contents('E:\test\file.txt') return the actual content of the file.

Actual result:
is_readable('E:\test\file.txt') returns false.

Little typo in the description. The problem is not that "is_writeable(...) always returns false", but that "is_readable(...) always returns false".

Is this still an issue with any of the actively supported PHP
versions[1]?  If so, please run

    fsutil reparsePoint query E:\mulated\Drive

and provide the "Reparse Tag Value".
