I have a third-part library that make a temp file somewhere. I need to find where because I have to give to that folder the correct security properties (now I can run this library only as administrator due to this trouble). How can I monitor my Filesystem to find which file are touched or created?


ProcessMonitor by SysInternal can do this!

You can get File-Handles by using Windows Built-in Resource Monitor just open "run.exe" > "resmon.exe"
Now Resource monitor has opened. Go to "CPU" Tab and select a process which you want to see the handles. Now you can see Handles by opening The drawer "Associated modules" and "Associated modules".
