Notificação quando um arquivo é alterado?

Existe algum mecanismo pelo qual eu possa ser notificado (em c #) quando um arquivo é modificado no disco?

    Isso seria System.IO.FileSystemWatcher .

    Você pode usar a class FileSystemWatcher .

     public void CreateFileWatcher(string path) { // Create a new FileSystemWatcher and set its properties. FileSystemWatcher watcher = new FileSystemWatcher(); watcher.Path = path; /* Watch for changes in LastAccess and LastWrite times, and the renaming of files or directories. */ watcher.NotifyFilter = NotifyFilters.LastAccess | NotifyFilters.LastWrite | NotifyFilters.FileName | NotifyFilters.DirectoryName; // Only watch text files. watcher.Filter = "*.txt"; // Add event handlers. watcher.Changed += new FileSystemEventHandler(OnChanged); watcher.Created += new FileSystemEventHandler(OnChanged); watcher.Deleted += new FileSystemEventHandler(OnChanged); watcher.Renamed += new RenamedEventHandler(OnRenamed); // Begin watching. watcher.EnableRaisingEvents = true; } // Define the event handlers. private static void OnChanged(object source, FileSystemEventArgs e) { // Specify what is done when a file is changed, created, or deleted. Console.WriteLine("File: " + e.FullPath + " " + e.ChangeType); } private static void OnRenamed(object source, RenamedEventArgs e) { // Specify what is done when a file is renamed. Console.WriteLine("File: {0} renamed to {1}", e.OldFullPath, e.FullPath); } 

    Use o FileSystemWatcher . Você pode filtrar apenas por events de modificação.
