Read File: different between fast read and full read

In windows, each time when we get in a folder, windows will read all files in this folder, each a little bit, in order to verify that the readed file is OK and to display some file properties when the user navigates to that file.

This kind of reading is different from when we use an Editor to open a file, for example.

The question is: are there any way to distinguish between these two reading types, in CBFS, for example, when the CbFsReadFileEvent is invoked ?

This question has been asked here a zillion times. The answer is the same - no.

Just a note - not "Windows will read all files" but Explorer, which is a regular user-mode process, will do this. Consequently when you don't use Explorer or file open dialog, this reading doesn't happen.
