    help with registering for events from Windows

    807596
      Hi,

      Im developing a P2P backup system for LANs in Java. I have the following problem
      Lets say there is a file called test.txt in my Windows file system. My software is running on Windows at this time. The user opens up the file through Windows Explorer and modifies it or deletes it altogether.
      Is there a way I can ask WIndows to alert my software when this happens.? Essentially I need a way to give a list of files to Windows and then listen for any activity on those files

      Many thanks for your help and time
