Creating Virtual File
Virtual files can be created explicitly and implicitly. Explicitly, a virtual file can be created with the following functions:
Implicitly, a virtual file can appear when the "all changes are virtual" mode is on. In this mode, a virtual file is created when you create a new file. If the parent directory of the file was created with BoxedAppSDK_CreateCustomVirtualDirectory, the same method will be called for creating a file within it. And if the parent directory is neither a virtual file nor a file created with BoxedAppSDK_CreateVirtualDirectory, then, depending on whether it's a directory or a regular file that is to be created, BoxedApp will use the BoxedAppSDK_CreateVirtualFile or BoxedAppSDK_CreateVirtualDirectory method.
