I recently finished my project with building a filesystemwatcher service.  I'm now searching for a way to capture the username which triggered the file action.  

Is this an option in any way?

AFAIK this is not possible.  Although, for file creation you could look at the File Owner.  There isn't any entry that I know of for user name when a file is modified.
