I need to monitor and FTP folder for new files.

The particular folder I am needing to monitor is on a Linux server. I cannot use SMB or WMI monitoring. This folder always has 8 files in it. Each day, the files are overwritten by new version with the same name. I need to know if the new files are not being dropped.

File count will not work. Must be able to check file dates.

Dear Laurie,

the Custom EXE/Script Sensors are exactly the tool of choice for such highly specific and "special" tasks.

best regards.
