Issue



At one time you were monitoring a drive e.g. E:\.  You have since removed this drive from your server and from the template.  However the entries for this drive still exist in the (fwatch.dat) snapshot file.  After upgrading to a newer SU e.g. SU 39 ESM removes the E:\ entry from the snapshot file.


Error



In the Console you get the message "File or Folder removed (Yellow Message)"


Cause



This is caused by a defect in the software.


Solution



The fix for this issue will be released in SU 42.
