Best way to hook into file system events? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Here is the idea. Essentially I want to know when a VPN client is trying to open certain media types (mp3, wmv, etc) and instead of opening them on the server-side machine, stream them to the VPN client. So how can I know when a file is trying to be opened? This seems like a Win32 Hook to me, but after some reading it seems as though there is no hook into the filesystem. What is the standard way to do this? Is something available in the Windows SDK?
