Get the files count in a directory and Compare the previous with the present.

If the count is increased then new files are added .

Files count you can get by using
Directory.GetFiles(“directory path”). Length

Hi @Nesrine,

Where you able to figure out a solution as to how a robot can listen/monitor any folder/directory structure for the arrival of new files. And if new files present run the process.

It will be really helpful.
