Network Folder Disconnect detection

Post by awolf »

I know Filewatcher will reconnect to a network folder that it's assigned to watch, but I'm wondering if there is anyway to take an action based on the folder not being available? If it tries to reconnect, say 5 times and cannot, will it toss an error that can be acted upon?
how may times will it attempt to reconnect if there is a problem on the remote end?

Followup Post - or better yet, if no "watched" files (local or remote) are detected for a defined period of time, take an alternative action ( a script to send an email for example)

Thank You!
