File Age monitoring for Windows Server

Hi all,


I'm looking to monitor a folder - and its subfolders - and get alert if there are files older than X minutes.
One point is: The folder is a shared folder


I could write a plugin script but in site24x7 console, I get the error below, its like if the plugin could not reach the shared folder drive:

Execution Error :: Get-ChildItem : Cannot find drive. A drive with the name 'Z' does not exist.

I tried re-writting the script, inserting the UNC path instead of the Shared Drive, but the same error occurs:

Execution Error :: Get-ChildItem : Cannot find path '\\blablabla.domain.local\blabla\Data\'


Maybe some tip for my script or maybe the site24x7 already has the solution as builtin?


Thanks in advance

Hi Alex,

We are taking up file age monitoring as a feature request and have added it to our product pipeline. Once this feature is released as a GA (General Availability) release, we will inform you through our announcements page and as a response to this post..

In the meantime, we encourage you to make the most out of our server monitoring features, such as alerts for when a file is modified or has not been modified for a specified time, monitoring the creation or deletion of a file in a folder, and many more.

If you have any further questions or need additional assistance, please feel free to reach out.

Happy monitoring!
