Cant seem to figure out how to monitor a directory when there are files in it that are over 2 hours old?
Any help would be apprecaiated.

Hi,

WD typically only reacts on NEW files, but there are ways around that.

You could use the File Age monitoring method ( http://www.watchdirectory.net/wdhelp/help/detect_old_files.html ) so WD will act on files that reach a certain "age".

Or you can use the option "Fire FILENEW/DIRNEW events for all files at startup" ( http://www.watchdirectory.net/wdhelp/help/wdnewconfigpage6.html ).
