Hello dochelp,

I'm currently looking into the USN journal spec in MS-FSA and MS-FSCC
and I've come across something that looks like an omission.

MS-FSCC defines USN_REASON_FILE_CREATE, but when looking at MS-FSA it
seems is missing a reference to USN_REASON_FILE_CREATE. In
fact, USN_REASON_FILE_CREATE isn't referenced at all.

Clearly, when looking at a NTFS USN journal on a Windows 2019 server
with fsutil.exe usn readJournal I see an entry added with reason
containing "File create" which I assume is the human readable
representation of USN_REASON_FILE_CREATE.

Can you please check and if indeed missing from the docs, please add it?
