  1. File Explorer and ini, ico and lnk files on NAS device


    Hi. We have a QNAP NAS device on our network that logs all activity. Our Windows pc's access the folders and files on the NAS via File Explorer. When a pc accesses a folder on the NAS, the log indicated that that pc has READ all the ini (and ico and lnk) files of all the folders and sub-folders of the NAS.


    For example, if a pc accesses the Coal Mining folder which has dozens and dozens of sub-folders. The NAS log shows the pc reading all the ini (and ico) files down all the folders trees on the NAS. In some cases, this can hundreds or even thousands of log entries.


    So it seem the File Explorer wants to find all those ini, ico and lnk files of all the folders and sub-folders even though the pc is not yet accessing any of the folders and sub-folders.


    Is this the way File Explorer works? Does it automatically search out ini, ico and lnk files in all the folders and sub-folders even though you have not tried to open or read them?



    Thanks. I hope this is not confusing. I'll add some sample log records:

    Snippet C#: INI Files

    This code is great, i'm going to use this in one of my programmes *Big Grin File Explorer and ini, ico and lnk files on NAS device :D

    is it possible to make a list of all sections in the ini files?
     
  3. Snippet C#: INI Files

    GetSections() will return a string[] of section names. If you want the values too, just do a for or for loop to enumerate them. For example:

    Code: foreach (string section in ini.GetSections()) { Console.WriteLine("[" + section + "]"); foreach (string key in ini[section].GetKeys()) Console.WriteLine(key + "=" + ini[section][key]); Console.WriteLine(); }[/quote]
