Refresh(F5)

Dear Hi,
Do you know how we can inform\notify the Windows explorer that there
is a possible change in system resources. In the explorer, thre is the
refresh option F5. What calls does it make to get the updated info?

We are modifying the status of one of our H/W devices and we want to have
the explorer update the info abt our drive. How this is possible.
//There may be some simple interfaces exported by explorer to help us ??

Pls share your thoughts.

TIA

    Balan:

    You can refresh any folder visible in the Explorer using SHChangeNotify
    routine.

    Regards,

    Vladimir.
