I we have a file trigger that's monitoring a folder for new files, that's fine as long as the vcron service is up and running...

But if we for some reason needs to restart the vcron service (during upgrade...) and new files are added to that folder meanwhile, those files will be left behind! At this point, we can manually fire the trigger for the job to resolve this...

Why not add a checkbox to the trigger like "Fire trigger on vcron server startup" or something, so we have the choice to have these issues resolved automatically when server resumes in service.

Btw, what if the monitored folder is on a remote server and a communication outage occurs? Will we have similar problem when communication is restored?
