File Server Resource Manager - email notification of folder change

Posted on 2015-01-23

I have a Windows 2012 R2 server running an SFTP server and I want to send email notifications when files are uploaded to particular directories.

I'm pretty sure this can be achieved with File Server Resource Manager, but I can't figure out how.

Do I need a File Screen, or File Management Task - or maybe a Storage Report?

If I'm understanding you (I hope I am!) this Technet Article gives you the steb-by-step setup you need, for the file screen config as well as the email notification. If the arrow has landed way off the mark, I'll boot up my 2012 VM and take a look, along with some screenshots :)

Ok, so basically I have to set all file types as unauthorised and use passive screening to send notifications?
