Hello PA, I'm looking to monitor the creation and deletion of local folders, while not concerned with any files in those folders. Example: I would like to know if anyone creates or deletes any folders under c:users. I can create and delete c:userstest and it does not notify of the creation or it being deleted and the console says "No changes detected in C:Users". IF I take the new monitor defaults, it has folder creation and deletion checked and all I need to do is add the path. I've tried multiple combinations of checking/unchecking the files section and ending training but I cannot get any notification of any folders being created or deleted. I am watching "C:Users + subdirs" And all it shows is "No changes detected in C:Users"

Any tips will be appreciated! Dave

Hi Dave,

When you ran your test did the monitor run after the test directory was crated and then after the directory was deleted? The monitor works of a list of files and directories that it has accumulated from each scan.

It turned out to be the training. Every change to the monitor properties restarts a training period. I needed to finish the initial training and then also end the training again when I made changes.
