Watching a File System for Changes

 You can configure Voyager to watch a specific location for changes if the location is a directory or database. Voyager will then update the index every time there is a change at that location, provided it is running.

Watching a File System

To watch a file system:

Go to Manage Voyager > Discovery > Locations 

The Watch icon next to the location shows whether or not it is being watched. Click the icon to turn watching on or off.


Watching a location will only work on files that have a 1-to-1 mapping to files on the system. For example, it works well for file-based Rasters, Shapefiles, Office documents, MXDs, Layer Files, etc., but will not currently work for SDE, VPF, or anything else that has a different internal structure than what is displayed as a file on disk.
