    Monitoring a folder

    I've been asked to monitor our public folder and produce a report of files added/modified on a daily basis.

    i.e run something at 8am and report all the files created/modified the day before.

    I can use windows search to do this but was looking for somethign that can be scheduled and email a list of recipients the resulting report.

    Any ideas?

    Ta.

    Not sure if it can be scheduled but I use JAM Software - TreeSize Professional – The Powerful and Flexible Hard Disk Space Manager for monitoring sizes of folders and stuff.

    What server version are you using. You should be able to schedule a windows storage report on any version over 2003 R2. It's part of the file server resource manager

    a scheduled recursive vbscript that checks the time stamps of all the files, writes a list of relevant files, then uses blat to mail it to whoever wants it.

    It's 2003 R2 looking at the reports available now. Only one I can see that's relevant is the most recently accessed however this won't just give me those that have been created in the last 24 hours

    Take a look at these : XTWare - FileNotify overview or FileNotify2 :: Index.

    I only ever used version one, but it seemed to do everything I wanted it to.

    Good luck.

    why not? do you have to distinguish between new and modified files?
