Represents advanced options for creating a FileStream object.

Syntax

Declaration

[Serializable]
[Flags]
[ComVisible(true)]
public enum FileOptions

Fields

Asynchronous

Indicates that a file can be used for asynchronous reading and writing.

DeleteOnClose

Indicates that a file is automatically deleted when it is no longer in use.

Encrypted

Indicates that a file is encrypted and can be decrypted only by using the same user account used for encryption.

None

Indicates that no additional options should be used when creating a FileStream object.

RandomAccess

Indicates that the file is accessed randomly. The system can use this as a hint to optimize file caching.

SequentialScan

Indicates that the file is to be accessed sequentially from beginning to end. The system can use this as a hint to optimize file caching. If an application moves the file pointer for random access, optimum caching may not occur; however, correct operation is still guaranteed.

WriteThrough

Indicates that the system should write through any intermediate cache and go directly to disk.
