FileSystemwatcher

P: n/a
Hello newsgroup,

I did set up a fileSystemWatcher to keep track
of changes to a folder on a network drive.
I can catch all the events I want, like creating files and changing them.
Now what I need to know is, WHO actually changed / created the file. Is
there any way to get my hands on this information?

Thanks in advance,

Andreas Schubert

Yes, i want that to. I search the internet but I can't find the right code.
Why is this so difficult. When I map a drive and I open a dosbox, use the
command "net file" i can see which files are opened including the user. Just
that kind if code I need to implement in my fileSystemWatcher.

Yes, I think this must be possible.
At least on computers running the server service.

I am currently digging into some information, let's see what I can come up
with.
