Because of its use of dotnet3, this tool is partially unusable.
Hello. I realy like you project. I have it in use on a terminal-server. is it possible to remove it from the taskbar und move it into the systray? So it would be perfect when the File Watcher starts when he is not present on the desktop or the taskbar. Yust only minimized with a icon in the systray. Many thanks, Thomas
Review from softpedia (by Ionut Ilascu) "The Truth For a more experienced user in need for a tool to keep an eye on specific areas of the computer, File Watcher Simple can be an indispensable asset. It is extremely easy to use and the developer also makes available a command-line version, as well as a Windows service edition. Additionally, it can be used for creating XML configuration files for the monitoring activity." Review from ghacks.net (by Martin Brinkmann) "Verdict File Watcher Simple is a powerful folder and file monitoring application for the Windows operating system. It could use a couple of features to make it easier to handle for users who are overly tech-savvy, an option to process the changed files in an easier way or to use it for backup purposes comes to mind, but overall, it is pretty good at what it does."
Reliable and runs smoothly
small and efficient and gets the job done.
