File Change Trigger Cloud Drive

Hi Friends,

I moved my files from a Shared Drive to a mapped Cloud Drive (pCloud). Unfortunately the File Change Trigger is not working anymore, when a file is changed by another machine.
It is still working when the change is made from the machine running the robot.

Any hints? I see that the “last changed” information is updating within the file browser but the File Change Trigger is not triggering.

“New System.IO.FileInfo(“file”).LastWriteTime.ToString” gives me a legit output. I’m probably just creating a while loop which checks the file info every second and compares it to the last output of the FileInfo… Probably the same what the File Change Trigger does. Nevertheless I would be grateful for an explanation why the File Change Trigger is not working on cloud mapped drives
