Project Description

Need a script to check processed directories every sixty minutes that it has been modified .

The processed directory is static to the user/customer directory, but user/customer directories will be added/deleted on a regular basis. Directories that have not been updated in one hour should be emailed, in a single email, to the end user. Script must be commented and allowed for modification by end user; and amount of time processed directory updated to be in minutes. Example: End user should be able to change directory not modified in 1 hour to 64 minutes before being emailed.

Script will be run on a single Server 2008R2 that includes ActivePerl [url removed, login to view], but must also be compatible with the latest ActivePerl at publishing time (currently [url removed, login to view]). Perl or Powershell accepted.

This script will not be sold, rented, leased, included in a packaged product, or otherwise used for monetary gain.
