FileShare

Synopsis

This enumeration defines how two different processes can access the same file. If one process is using ReadWrite or Write, no other process can use the file. Similarly, if another process is using Read, then other processes can read from the file, but not write to it.

public enum FileShare {
            None = 0x00000000,
            Read = 0x00000001,
            Write = 0x00000002,
            ReadWrite = 0x00000003,
            Inheritable = 0x00000010
}
