Hello,

I have a problem with a folder sensor. I want monitoring how is older a file in a folder. I have setting a sensor on my server 2012 R2 using path e$\test

I have create a file txt of some Kb and the sensor go successfully where I see the dimension of the file and every information that the sensor can give me.

But if I try copy in that folder a larger file, the sensor go in error and I lost all information and in the table of live graph return me all fields with value "Error" and the sensor go down with message "file too old", then if I remove the file from the folder and remain the txt file the sensor return in up state.

There is a way to view a log for that sensor for understand the reason of this problem? I have try the check permission on file etc. but without results.

Dear Trueblue

Please check the channel limit for the file age. If you remove or deactivate those limits, does the sensor now work as expected?
