Monitoring Apple Mac folders
Feb 19th, 2016 at 10:34am
I don't think that this has been asked before (I've searched the forum for 'Apple').

Has anyone used WatchDirectory to monitor folders on Apple Macs? I suspect that this is not possible as I understand that WatchDirectory is a Windows utility.

If not, are there any similar products that can monitor folders on an Apple Mac. I know about Hazel but have not had the chance to evaluate it in any way.

Many thanks,

You can monitor apple folders on the network, that should work fine. Maybe not if you use the Default or Fast monitoring methods.

If you want to RUN WD on an apple computer, you need one of those virtual Windows tools (forgot the name) that allow you to run Win apps on a mac.
