VB Script to monitor date/time modified folder

Hi experts,

I must create a script to monitor a folder if it has not been modified because the files that are alocated on that folder stay there only a few seconds, so I thing the best way is to monitor not the files but the last modified date of the folder that contains those files. I plan to run the script remotely.

The script should show a message like this: Wscript.Echo "Message: last date/time modified", and an output error like this: Wscript.Quit(4), if the last date modified is less than 30 minutes of the current date/time.

Thanks in advance for your help

Try the following code.


Folder_Path = "\\servername\drivename$\foldername" 'Example \\DCSERVER01\c$\monitor

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(Folder_Path)

WScript.Echo "Message:" & objfolder.DateLastModified

If DateDiff("n",objfolder.DateLastModified,Now)< 30 Then
      WScript.Echo "Modified time < 30 Mins"
End If
