Hi All.

In my .NET app I use 'FileSystemWatcher class' and his handlers - Changed, Created, Renamed and Deleted which return 'e.FullPath' value.

How to determine if 'e.FullPath' is 'file' or 'folder' in OnDeleted action?

I use simple test 'Directory.Exists(e.FullPath)' in OnChanged, OnCreated and OnRenamed actions. But in OnDeleted action I cannot pass this test because e.FullPath object was just deleted.

Any idea?

Thanks Martin

Hi Martin,
    I think you can see the result of the following attributes of the class "NotifyFilter" to check if the deleted file was folder or file. Let 's check these attributes "DirectoryName" and "FileName". I think there would show the different value once you delete folder and file.
    Unfortunately, I didn't have Visual Studio .Net on my machine now. I would test and let you later once I returned to my home and test the code from the following link http://www.codeproject.com/dotnet/folderwatcher.asp
    However, if you have available time to test and found that it is the solution for your question. Please feel free to let me know.
