Folder monitoring and take action on modification

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

I've series of direct URL of books (Files format are pdf, epub and txt) and books are being queued in IDM for downloading but I've given instructions to idm to move file after download to a specific folder i.e "Completed Download" and IDM did the same as usual.

My problem is that I want to monitor "Completed Download" folder using autoit, as the IDM will move complete downloaded file to my "Completed Download" folder my autoit script will take action on the arrival of new file and send winrar command line code to convert newly arrived file into .zip file (such as book1.pdf to compress it into book1.zip) and wait until new file will arrive in "Completed Download" folder to do the same..

Please guide how can make this possible

 

Thanks

IIRC this subject has been discussed a few times on the forum.
Search for "monitor folder" and you will get a lot of hits.
