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.

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