Inconsisent Task Performance
Mar 15th, 2016 at 4:15pm
 
I have been using WD Pro for several months and it has performed flawlessly; however, in the last week, I have had inconsistent results with one of my tasks. 

I'm monitoring a shared network folder on an offsite NAS.  At 6AM, another piece of software drops a daily report in this folder and then WD copies it to a local folder on my C drive to perform additional WD tasks.  I''m not sure why, but lately, this copy task isn't always running.Nothing has been changed in WD, on the server, or my PC. 

If I stop the task, remove the file, restart the task, and then paste the file back into the monitored folder, the task runs nearly instantly like I'd expect. I will mention that I am using the Default monitoring method, as the "fast monitoring method did not detect the renamed file" when I tested.

Hoping someone might be able to shed some light onto this issue and help me get back the consistent task performance.

Thanks

Please switch to Polling Method. The other 2 methods need to have a Windows Server running on watched folder server.
