Hello,

and sorry for the late reply.

For a realtime scan I'd suggest to use the fastest APIs available. That would be FindFirstFileW/FindNextFileW. What do you mean with the "current directory"? Every application has its own "current directory". Do you mean the current directory of your own application? Then simply call the win32 API "GetCurrentDirectory".

You mean you want to know which directory a specific explorer window is listing? I don't really know how to do that. There's no official win32 API for getting this information, as far as I know.
