Script to check changes in a folder every 45 minutes

i'd need a script that check a folder (let's say c:\my_folder) every 45 minutes to know if its content is changed. If its content is changed (there aren' t the same files or the folder is empty) compared to the previous check then it's all ok, otherwise send an email to my_email@my_domain.com: "problem on c:\my_folder".

Thank you for your help.
