Detect changes in a directory without WinAPI - (Moved)


Recommended Posts

Hi, i'm tring to do a script that detects the changes in a directory. I can not use WinAPI_ReadDirectoryChanges or similar because the script will not run all the time.

I was planing to read the directory tree and save it to a text file and every time the script starts it will read the file and compare with actual tree.

But i'm not sure how to do that...a little help would be apreciated. Thanks a lot!

 

#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <String.au3>

Local $sDirectoryPath = "Y:\gestor3"
Local $sTree = ""
Local $sFileName = ""

   Local $hFileOpen = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\gestor4.txt", $FO_READ)
    If $hFileOpen = -1 Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "An error occurred when reading the file.")
        Return False
     EndIf
    Local $sFileRead = FileRead($hFileOpen)
    FileClose($hFileOpen)

   
   ;HERE IT SHOULD TEST IF $sFileRead IS DIFFERENT TO $sTree AND ENUMERATE CHANGES
   
    $sTree = _CreateDirTree($sDirectoryPath,"\", "|", "-")
    $sFileName = @ScriptDir & "\gestor4.txt"
    FileDelete($sFileName)
    FileWrite($sFileName, $sTree)
    ConsoleWrite($sTree & @CRLF)
