I'm using the sync framework to sync folder/files to a remote system. I'm using the filesyncprovider with a custom full enumeration provider for this. I am storing custom metadata from the remote system in the sql metadata store. Can anyone tell me how can i query this store for the custom fields in places where we are not provided a ItemFieldDictonary....i.e..in the "InsertItem" method?
I need to query the metadata store to determine the ID of the parent folder under which the current file/folder is created, so that i can appropriately place the new file/folder in its rightful container on the remote system.

This is what i have
internal static class ItemFields
public const uint CUSTOM_FIELD_NAME = 1;
public const uint CUSTOM_FIELD_TIMESTAMP = 2;
public const uint CUSTOM_FIELD_SIZE = 3;
public const uint CUSTOM_FIELD_REMOTEID = 4;
public const uint CUSTOM_FIELD_FILENAME = 5;
public const uint CUSTOM_FIELD_ISFOLDER = 6;
Then in the EnumerateItems method, i'm storing the custom metadata as followsItemFieldDictionary item = new ItemFieldDictionary();
item.Add(new ItemField(ItemFields.CUSTOM_FIELD_REMOTEID, typeof(string), remote_id));
I have assigned the identityRule to the "path" of the file/folder.
Now...how can query on any of this custom metadata..i.e..given a path "Folder\Filename.txt", how can i get the value for remote_id
