watchDirectory is a useful and helpful application which enables the user to monitor a directory and uatomatically copy any new files to another location.
The bat or command file that is executed receives all information on what has changed on the command line and in environment-variables.
Basically you can do anything you want with this information. Several example bat-files to get you started are included in the online help. There are more examples available on our web site and forum.
Here are some key features of "watchDirectory":
· Automatically backup files that are created in a directory.
· Automatically FTP modified files from a directory to an FTP server/web-site
· Automatically compile sources that arrive in a directory (Auto Make)
· Synchronizing 2 directories
· Efficiently monitors directories: watchDirectory receives a notification from Windows when the monitored folder changes
· Easy to start automatically at system start-up
· 30 days trial
· Nag screen
