Monitor File For Changes
Jan 14th, 2013 at 4:14pm
 
Hello:
I would like to monitor a specific file in a directory anytime there is a change to that file. Is this possible? Using Pro version. Thank you very much!

Hi,

Setup the task to monitor the directory ( C:\MonitorMe ) without sub-directories. Then create a filter that names the file so it only triggers for that file, see

http://www.watchdirectory.net/wdhelp/help/filter_events.html
and
http://www.watchdirectory.net/wdhelp/help/edit_filter.html

I guess you need "filename equals file.txt".
