Hi,

I did a file trigger test (inc subdirs) with hugde amount of files (1,932).
The job was in queue mode and one task in it and this is a file write task adding the filename of the triggered file into a file.

In the text file I had only 240 filenames of the 1932 files I copied in the dir.

the log tolled me:

11/25/2008 8:56:29 AM	Err	Error watching directory, err: Too many changes at once in directory:F:\Temp.
11/25/2008 8:56:29 AM	Debug	Reconnected file trigger. Directory: F:\Temp, filter: *.*


This error happened a few times during the copy.

I thought a queued job never missed a file trigger anymore?

The number of events is restricted by a windows buffer. We can increase this but then it will take more memory. We will try that for the next time.

It was just a test. I don't think we have that much of files copied in a folder at once.
But with 500 files, I have 180 filenames in the text file. I thought I did this test in an earlier version and it worked, or am I wrong?

The error comes from Windows, not from us. And changes may be larger or smaller sometimes. I think we are using 8Kb buffer. It is a buffer in windows that captures all events - I think you may have reached the current limit. http://msdn.microsoft.co....internalbuffersize.aspx
