    "Sweet app if you can figure out how to use it"

    May 21, 2009   |   By RickSchwein

    Version: File Watcher Simple 0.8


    Once configured, it efficiently monitors file system activity and is able to log and execute applications as appropriate. Oh, and it's free!


    Zero documentation, zero documentation, and operating syntax is not at all obvious. It took hours of trial and error to get FWS to run a perl script against a file.


    With even basic documentation and a few examples, this would be very easy to implement.

    Correction. There is documentation, though minimal, and examples, if you first run the File Watcher Console program with the /e switch. It creates an xml that FWS will read and you can get a running start on configuring this very handy (if cryptic) utlity.
