THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:
- EFT Server version 5.1.1 and later
In EFT Server version 5.1.1 and later, you can create/edit a registry key to set the "dwFilter" parameter that is passed into the function "ReadDirectoryChangesW()", which is the core of the Folder Monitor feature.
On 32-bit systems:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0\EventRules]
On 64-bit systems:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0\EventRules]
The default value is the same legacy value that had been present since the initial delivery of the feature:
FILE_NOTIFY_CHANGE_FILE_NAME | FILE_NOTIFY_CHANGE_ATTRIBUTES | FILE_NOTIFY_CHANGE_SIZE | FILE_NOTIFY_CHANGE_CREATION | FILE_NOTIFY_CHANGE_LAST_WRITE | FILE_NOTIFY_CHANGE_LAST_ACCESS
(This is a value of 0x7D)
This is useful to override to "quiet" the folder monitor event dispatching; for example, if only looking for NEW files added to the folder, then exclude the "FILE_NOTIFY_CHANGE_FILE_NAME | FILE_NOTIFY_CHANGE_ATTRIBUTES | FILE_NOTIFY_CHANGE_LAST_ACCESS" set.
