    2nd icon in explorer - file (directory) state icon

    Hi All,

    For few months I have tried to find a solution for adding an icon in Windows explorer, which would indicate a state of file in backup process. I would like to add some small green stick in the corner if file (or directory) is already backed up or some other if not.

    Do you know any solution which I would make in C#? If not I would be apreciated for any clue?

    Thanks

    You'll need to write a shell extension handler. Here's some info in C++

    Microsoft doesn't recommend doing this in managed code.
