563: Object Open for Delete

On this page

Event 563 does not get logged on normal file deletes. MS documentation says "An attempt was made to open an object with the intent to delete it. Note: This is used by file systems when the FILE_DELETE_ON_CLOSE flag is specified in Createfile().". For files opened exclusively by another program this flag is the only way to delete them.
