    Monitoring drag & drop between different drives in Windows


    Hey!

    We develop a service and we need it to monitor drag & drop from one drive to another.

    We looked into a few options and we didn't find any solution, except scanning the whole drive, which takes too long.

    Can you help us understand the mechanism behind the drag & drop in Windows or help us find open source tools?


    We succeeded monitoring the clipboard, but it doesn't work on drag & drop.

    :)

  2. Drag and Drop

    Hi Charles,

    the steps you suggested didn't work for me but, when pressing the escape key it somehow expanded the drive and by using drag and drop to the single file in the list worked.

    In the past I could drag and drop multiple folders onto the drive on the network computer(s). Doing it on individual folders will take far too long and time consuming and is not an option.

    Microsoft should be able to identify what is blocking it and issue a fix.

    My machine is multi boot so tomorrow I will try with Windows 7.

    Many thanks for your help,

    Deric
