Folder Activity Script?

Recommended Posts

I have a backup folder that I need to confirm is being written to on a regular basis.

If the backup folder has not been written to I would like an investigation ticket generated.

so something like if  "backupfolder" has not been written to in "x" days generate ticket. 

has anybody done something similar and what is the best way to go about this.

thanks,

How are you currently backing up to this folder? Generally most backup software can be configured to alert on failures.

I have Quickbooks backing up to a server location.when the user closes Quickbooks every 3 times it backs up the company file. Its not an intelligent system, you just point it at a folder and it goes. Recently it stopped writing and it went unnoticed. I do back up the accounting server using dedicated software which would notify me if backups stopped.This is just for redundancy and if something happens its easier than mounting the full backup.

I have a similar need with a different program.

I was thinking an internal monitor with a PowerShell script, but then I ended up down the rabbit hole (still a newbie with labtech)
