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

    Version: File Watcher Simple 0.8

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    Summary

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

    Updated on May 22, 2009

    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.
