Filesystemwatcher created event

P: n/a
I am trying to find out exactly when this even fires when a file is
"created" in a directory being monitored. That is, for a large file, that
takes several minutes to upload, will the created event fire as soon as the
file starts loading, or only when the file has been completely uploaded.

I can't find any documentation to this at MSDN.

Thanks,
Ripley

Nevermind - a google search soon turned up this page:
http://bloggingabout.net/blogs/jschr.../06/12886.aspx
In it, the author explains that the created event is fired as soon as the
first byte is written. He then shows a way to handle this.
