Monitoring directories for new files and then moving them to another directory on the same server

Hi All

I have posted previously about a automated FTP program of which I am going to use WinSCP however I have a number  of different directories that I need to transfer files from.

Firstly I do not understand the arguments and technical side of running multiple instances of WinSCP and secondly to make things tidier I was hoping someone could recommend a simple program that monitors these directories and as files arrive moves the files from each directory into 1 single folder for WinSCP to then pick up.

Any recommendations will be appreciated
