Multiple file monitoring

Post by MerlinPerezGore » Mon Apr 18, 2011 1:55 pm

I used to be able to select multiple files and set the schedule to monitor, which would monitor all these files individually, so that when I changed ONE file in the folder only THAT file would sync with the server. Now it seems you can only do this per folder, which cyncs the WHOLE folder every time, or go through the monitor process for every single file. When you're dealing with 100s of files, youd on't want to have to set the trigger for every individual file.
Why have you changed the way this works? If you retained this functionality, could you please tell me what i'm doing wrong?
Thanks
Merlin

Thank you. How many files do you want to monitor at the same time? Are these files in different folders?

The number of files is in the hundreds, and yes they are in different folders. I used to be able to drag and drop into the transfer queue which was paused, then right-click on all the files and set to monitor when edited, it seems I am no longer able to do that?

Since we have refactored the Scheduler this is no longer possible. But our application is open for 3rd party developers to write addons or standalone applications which can offer this functionality.

Is there a way I can make the program watch a folder but only sync the files that have changed rather than the whole folder every time?

Yes this actually the default behavior for the folder monitor.

So what am I doing wrong? I set the folder to monitor changes, but it syncs every file in the folder, instead of just one file.

Do you have the [x] Use cached folder tree option enabled in the Queue Action (Schedule Properties, Actions).
