Can you try to explain a bit further?

Are those files created in the correct order?

Yes I have a bunch (500+) of files pushed into a folder for us with time and date in the file name.

We really need to be able to move this in time and date order to another system, so they can be ingested to it.
thanks
Dave

Was there any resolution to this ? The order in which files are copied from one directory to another does not appear to be be based on datetime or filename.

Is the order configurable. I would like it to be by filename.

Thanks

It depends on the monitoring method you use:
http://www.watchdirectory.net/wdhelp/help/wdnewconfigpage3.html

The "Fast" method is the only method that will fire events in the correct order (file creation). Note that it doesnt look at the filename to file timestamps to determine the order. Windows notifies WD in the correct order.

We are using watchftp connected to a unix ftp server, so we do not have fast polling. We want to move 500 files in date order.

Can this be done.

Thanks
