Thanks, that's good information. And how unfortunate, too. Every OS has its warts. I guess I'm happy with the devil I know (Linux).

    Thankfully I don't have the requirement for an "atomic deletion" of the file, because

    • I'm locking a semaphore file
    • the target files have unique names
    • their content is not security relevant
    • it's basically logging for observing state and retrieving errors

    But I'm trying to build my solution as OS agnostic as possible.

    I will let you know if I find something for "atomic deletion" on Win.

    update

    ) though a use case might help to wrap my head around it. And Win has symlinks now...

    I still rather feel like a Linuxer even after 5 years in a Win project.
