Hello I'm watching a directory using FileSystemWatcher.
When a file is created into that directory - my watcher grabs and transfers it to the network drive.
My problem is that when a Microsoft-office file is opened, a temporary file is created in the watched directory. I can't find a way to ignore these files and also could not find when I should move these file to the network drive.
Temporary files have file attribute that cite it. You can check for this attribute if the FileInfo.Attributes
check this FileAttributes
If I'm not mistaking, those temporary files are hidden files. If that doesn't work, you might consider allowing files with special names (those temporary files start with a tilde ~) to be ignored by your program. Using Regular Expressions you could set more "ignore masks" like that.
