Is there anything like inotify on Windows?

Issue

With the Linux OS, there is the inotify subsystem which notifies an application of changes to the filesystem.

However, I am mainly a Windows user, so I was wondering if there is a similar way to monitor filesystem changes?

Solution

See the FindFirstChangeNotification API, or the .NET counterpart FileSystemWatcher
