I am attaching a sample project. All I did was to extend FileSystemContentProvider which has all the functionality already implemented to get you up and running without writing a single line of code on your own. However, just for the purpose of the example I have overridden some of its methods to write log entries to the EventLog. You can also take complete control of the IO operations, even extend the abstract class FileBrowserContentProvider.
