inotifywait on remote folder with local mount point
Posted on 2016-10-29
I'm running a VirtualBox with Ubuntu, hosted on Windows 10. I have an NTFS directory mounted as a VB shared folder. From within the VM, I want to monitor this directory recursively for file changes and run a local shell script when one is detected.
I'm familiar with inotifywait, but the file changes are being done from the host side, so the VM's file system does fire any events when a change is made.
