how can I communicate a timeout to the driver/explorer so the user gets a understandable feedback if an timeout happens.

I tried something like this at the end of EnumerateDircetory(..)


           //some code with timeout possible
           //because server is not responding
           catch (TimeoutException)
                throw new ECBFSError((uint)Errors.ERROR_TIMEOUT);//timeout error code -> 1460

But the explorer simply shows an empty folder. Any idea how this can be done in a better way?

Thanks and Regards

It seems that Explorer either doesn't check for errors during enumeration or doesn't show them to the user.
Try to throw some other errors. Perhaps they can be shown.
