Automatic Refresh of Folder

I use a FTP drive and map it to a local drive using Netdrive 3.
Additionally I am using a second tool that is automatically printing a file once it occurs in a specific folder.

Problem is that Netdrive is only refreshing the folder content when I actively revisit the folder. Therefore the second tool never prints any new file that has been copied to the network drive.

Is there a way to do an automatic refresh every x seconds without interactively revisiting the folder?


Dear Jo,

NetDrive provides a command line interface. Pleas refer to the link below.

You can create a batch file to automate refresh using the command line.
The following is an example of refresh.

echo start batch file

nd3cmd refreshpath “F:\download”

timeout 5
