What are people saying about File and Folder Watcher

Genie au Travail Extract from the policy:
"After you make a purchase of this BitsDuJour discount promotion, File and Folder Watcher may be used for 12 months."

Is that correct?
Nov 28 2011 at 12:28am Copy Link
Simon Carter It is a perpetual license - you can use it indefinitely. We will update the policy!

Tom Hello,

Can anything be said on the use of systemresources when this apllication runs (under windows 7)?

Thanks in advance.
Nov 28 2011 at 6:57am Copy Link
Simon Carter Yes! File Watcher uses *minimal* system resources while it runs - 8 MB memory, and very little CPU. If you use the 'polling' option for an FTP or network location it will use slightly more than without.
DataMystic - Nov 28 2011 at 1:12pm Copy Link
Simon Carter Note - this offer also applies to the Server Edition of FileWatcher. Once the deal is live please contact us for the coupon code.

John Lovatt I can't find any details of the server edition on your website. Any chance of a feature list and pricing info? Cheers.
Dec 1 2011 at 3:34am Copy Link
Simon Carter @John: Yes, please see for pricing (the single user edition does not run on a server)
DataMystic - Dec 1 2011 at 4:17am Copy Link
John Killeen I was planning to run File Watcher on my home server (which runs WHS 2011). Does that mean I need the $195 server version? This program is obviously most useful on a server, but that price rules it out for home use, even with a discount..

Stephane M @Simon Carter


Just to let you know that I sent a support request through your website regarding an issue with FTP.
I would appreciate if someone could look at it before the deal ends.

Thank you.

Stephen Warkentien How do I monitor multiple folders with different actions for each?
Dec 1 2011 at 11:05am Copy Link
Simon Carter @Stephane:
Just woke up - sorry about the delay in getting back to you!

From memory, you need to setup a 'FTP location' under Windows' Network Locations list, and then use that. It also avoids having the password in the clear within FileWatcher.
DataMystic - Dec 1 2011 at 12:53pm Copy Link
Simon Carter @John: We haven't dealt with WHS before, but I am sure an exception can be added for it. If you would like to purchase with the discount, we can have the amended Single User version to you early next week.
DataMystic - Dec 1 2011 at 12:55pm Copy Link
John Killeen @Simon: Thank you for the positive response. I'll purchase Filewatcher and await the amended version.
Dec 1 2011 at 3:37pm Copy Link
Simon Carter @Stephen: For different actions, there is a .vbs script included with File Watcher that lets you monitor multiple folders but with different actions. It is called "different action for each folder.vbs"
DataMystic - Dec 1 2011 at 3:59pm Copy Link
Stephen Warkentien Too much trouble to program. Did that for thirty years. Now I buy software so I won't have to.
Dec 1 2011 at 4:05pm Copy Link
Simon Carter @Stephen: Your choice of course, but the script is simple - all you have do is modified the target folder and the target action. e.g.

if folder = "S:\AOS\PSD\SIMT\DFAS-Rpts\Comp Time Rpt" then
ExecuteWithTerminalOutput( "C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /c S:\ISMS\DESOM\Xpedite\P6602R05.bat " + chr(34) + filename + chr(34) )
elseif ...

Simon Carter Folks - we are currently fixing a problem with the FTP - should be fixed in a moment. We are also including a fix so that Windows Home Server (WHS) is not detected as a Server platform.

Simon Carter v3.3.1 has been released - with a FTP fix, and Windows Home Server detection fix.

Simon Carter @Faisal - Network/UNC/Mapped drive support - yes! If a UNC path is mapped to a non-Windows file system (like Unix Samba), then you can use polling to specify how often to check.

Amit Hello,

1) What about if a file changes only and not any new file added to a folder - can this software monitor ANY file modification and then do the set action ?

2) I would like to know how are alerts displayed whenever any action (set before) is done - eg. I set a particualr folder to monitor and when its contents change and Watcher performs the action - in what all ways alerts can be shown - And Is System tray notification (notification in system tray possible) too?

3) Can I use this software as a fully whole backup application too - I am not talking about OS backups.

4) Also is a portable version available - or if not - can we make it portable ourselves with some softwares as or cameyo - after buying the license ?

lemonade soda Amit, I'm an "end user" like you. I went to and had most of YOUR questions answered right there on the front page!
Sep 30 2012 at 4:17am Copy Link
bvssunnydale This question seems to appear on every-other-product - the license seems to be for a SINGLE computer but, at the same time, it's licensed PER USER. But the policy also says it may not be used at exactly the same time on "each of them". So is it actually licensed per user (multiple cpus but not simultaneously) or per cpu (one cpu, period)? Thanks.
Sep 30 2012 at 7:44am Copy Link
Amit Ya lemonade already seen that - but not got info on alerts really.

Also if author can answer the questions would be very helpful.

The usage - I guess is a bit hard to use and not wizard driven or likewise - as from their page -

How to use File Watcher
filewatcher.exe "/f=settings.fwx" [/g]

Where options is one or more of:
/f=.. Load a settings file
/g Begin watching immediately

i downloaded the help file but it doesnt work - or show anything.
Sep 30 2012 at 10:18am Copy Link
The Oneiros Will this program monitor if the amount of files of a certain extension reaches a number so it will automatically move them into a folder, each time giving those target folders an increasing number?

Each time a monitored folder is filled with 500 .docs, it will move them into say 'c:\doc01', c:\doc02', c:\doc03', and so on, each of those having 500 docs inside.

Thanks for the offer.
Sep 30 2012 at 12:03pm Copy Link
Simon Carter @Amit - 1) Yes, File Watcher can look for modifications only
2) You can choose what style of alerts - you can display a popup, send an email, show Growl-style alerts, etc etc. Because FW can run any vbscript or jscript, you can choose how your receive alerts (
3) Yes, you can use FW to copy any changed files to a different drive
4) We can have a portable version available soon
DataMystic - Sep 30 2012 at 5:25pm Copy Link
Simon Carter @Amit - BTW - we can extend the same discount for the portable version
DataMystic - Sep 30 2012 at 5:32pm Copy Link
Simon Carter @bvssunnydale - we don't care how many CPUs you have in your computer. If you are an individual, for convenience, you can use the software both on a desktop and laptop provided only one is in use at a time ie the license is for one person. In a work environment, the software can be installed on one computer and used by all users of that computer (one logged in at a time), ie not a file sharing or app sharing-type use.
DataMystic - Sep 30 2012 at 5:46pm Copy Link
Simon Carter @Helder Muniz - Yes, it would be quite easy to write a script to do this. We can provide you with one with your purchase - it will take us a couple of days to get it together.
DataMystic - Sep 30 2012 at 5:47pm Copy Link
Simon Carter @Amit - File Watcher has a GUI so you can define everything quite easily. The command line is for advanced use, such as starting FW automatically when your system starts up. Also, if the help file does not work, then your system may be missing components to read .chm help files. Try the microsoft web site for help, or this:

Terry McMorrow I was interested in this program until i found out that if you want to do different actions for a different folders you have to run multiple copies of the program. The program should be more graceful and allow you to setup all your folder watching in one instance of the program.
Sep 30 2012 at 6:55pm Copy Link
The Oneiros @ Simon Carter:
Thank you. Will be great, then.

Buying this license automatically grants access to the portable version? If so, deal.
Sep 30 2012 at 10:38pm Copy Link
Simon Carter @Terry: All folders can be watched with different actions - as documented in the forums and help file, you can specify different actions for each folder.
DataMystic - Sep 30 2012 at 11:38pm Copy Link
Simon Carter @Helder Muniz: I can convert you across to the portable version as soon as it is available, and for anyone else who asks for it for this promotion. Note that the portable version will be an alternative to, and not offered in conjunction with the normal full installation version. We have followed this approach successfully with our DirDate product and had no problems, but let me know if you have any issues.
