FileWatcher

FileWatcher 4.1

Automatically triggers a specified action when a new file is added to a folder
 
4.1 (See all)
Monitors one or more selected folders for changes and automatically triggers a previously configured event whenever a new file is being added to the folders in question. The tool also includes filtering options, triggering an action only if the new file matches certain criteria.

Continuously monitor a folder or group of folders for new files, then trigger a custom action, such as running a second program with the new files. Files are processed only when completely written - perfect for huge files such as video. Incoming files can be grouped together or processed individually.
File and Folder Watcher can be used to:
* Process incoming FTP files
* Automatically distil PDF files
* Data mine incoming files with TextPipe Pro, also from DataMystic
* Process email attachments when they are saved to disk
* Load new files into a database
* Quickly and easily trigger business processes when files are created
* and much more.
File Watcher can process only those files that match a filespec (e.g. '*.txt;*.html') and ignore all other files that might arrive at the same time. It can also watch multiple folders at the same time (subfolders are handled with a checkbox).
File Watcher can also prevent triggering new actions while an old action is still running.
