Dont Exit

Im trying to watch a log folder, and when the log folder is changed to email me with the log file as an attachment, so googling about someone has done 99.9% of the work already:-

So modifying it to work for me:-
$watchPath = "C:\Test Folder (3)\"

$sendToList = @("")
$sendFrom = ""
$emailSubject = "File '{0}' changed"
$smtpHost = ""

$watcher = New-Object System.IO.FileSystemWatcher 
$watcher.Path = $watchPath
$watcher.IncludeSubdirectories = $false
$watcher.EnableRaisingEvents = $true

$changed = Register-ObjectEvent $watcher "Changed" -Action { 

    Send-MailMessage -SmtpServer $smtpHost -To $sendToList -from $sendFrom -Subject ($emailSubject -f $eventArgs.Name) -Attachments $eventArgs.FullPath


Open in new window

Code seems to run, but exits after completing. Is there a way to stop the script from exiting so the email event will work?

Thank you in advance

Start it with  powershell -NoExit -File YourScript.ps1   . That leaves the PowerShell process opened.
