NotifyCanFileBeDeleted Event

Fires when the OS marks a file or directory for deletion or removes such a mark.


public class DefaultCbfilterEventListener implements CbfilterEventListener {
  public void notifyCanFileBeDeleted(CbfilterNotifyCanFileBeDeletedEvent e) {}

public class CbfilterNotifyCanFileBeDeletedEvent {
  public String fileName;
  public boolean canDelete;
  public int status;
  public int resultCode;


This event fires when the OS marks the file or directory specified by FileName for deletion or removes such a mark.

Files and directories can be deleted in two ways: a file or directory can be opened with the FILE_FLAG_DELETE_ON_CLOSE flag, or some process may call Windows API's NtSetInformationFile function with FILE_DISPOSITION_INFORMATION or FILE_DISPOSITION_INFORMATION_EX structure as a parameter.

Applications only need to handle this event if they've added a standard filter rule that includes the FS_NE_CAN_DELETE flag.

The CanDelete parameter reflects whether the file or directory can be deleted.

The Status parameter contains an NT status code that indicates the outcome of the operation; 0 indicates success. To convert this value to a Win32 error code, call the NtStatusToWin32Error method. Please note that this event won't fire for failed requests unless the ProcessFailedRequests property is enabled.

The ResultCode parameter will always be 0 when the event is fired. If the event cannot be handled in a "successful" manner for some reason, set it to a non-zero value to report an appropriate error. Note, however, that this event fires after the operation has already completed, so reporting an error won't actually affect the operation itself. Please refer to the Error Reporting and Handling topic for more information.

This event is fired asynchronously; please refer to the Event Types topic for more information.
