I need a code snippet, .BAS file, OCX, DLL or series of subroutines that will allow my application to be notified when any files located on the various hard drive(s) of the machine are opened, changed, deleted, etc.
Basically any time a file is accessed I need a notification so I that I can mark it for backup.
I work in Visual Basic Only and I need it to be compatible with VB6 as I cannot be assured of the end user having the .NET framework. I have made this process work easily in .NET, but I am a little stumped on how to make it work with VB6 apps.
I need to also make sure there are no royalties required for distribution.
