When the user clicks Free up space in the Explorer menu, CF_CALLBACK_TYPE_NOTIFY_DEHYDRATE and CF_CALLBACK_TYPE_NOTIFY_DEHYDRATE_COMPLETION are not invoked.

In the Cloud Mirror Sample, it uses ReadDirectoryChangesW and checks FILE_ATTRIBUTE_UNPINNED flag to detect if the placeholder is dehydrated by the user, then call a preview API CfDehydratePlaceholder for unknown reasons.

    Hello @229 ho,

    You can report the issue at https://github.com/microsoft/Windows-classic-samples/issues.

    CF_CALLBACK_TYPE_NOTIFY_DEHYDRATE and CF_CALLBACK_TYPE_NOTIFY_DEHYDRATE_COMPLETION are also not invoked in the Cloud Mirror Sample for me.
