Scheduled Task (Server 2008) trigger on file create

Need to create a Sceduled Task, which trigger on a file create in a folder.
I'll then run a Powershell-script looping all files and do some processing.
Any idea ?

A scheduled task runs on a schedule NOT on a file being created, thats not a schedule.

You would need to write a script that monitors the folder for the creation of the file and have it run 24/7 looping the check.

Ok, let me rephrase then :-)
I'm wondering if it is possible to use "Task Scheduler" to perform such a job for me ?
Not triggering on Schedule, but "on an event".

The first answer is correct you will need the process to run continuously

A better approach would be to use the FileSystemWatcher from the .NET Framework as this means that the system itself will monitor the directory and call code in terms of new/updated/deleted files.

Here is a reference for the use of the FileSystemWatcher in PowerShell:
