Good morning everyone!

So my boss asked me to do a program using anything I want(I'm no programmer tho lol). I will try to explain the best I can with the little I know about programming and my brazilian english haha

So what I want to do is I have two folders(Original and Copy):
1)The first part is: everytime the Original folder is changed or gets something new, it has to be uptaded to the Copy folder after running the program.
2)Plus there are 3 subfolders(gfx, parameters and Global Objects) which everytime one of them gets a new archive is has to show a message saying "NEW ARCHIVE".

The first part I did with batch files using Robocopy, but I'm struggling with the second part. If you guys have any advice on what using instead of batch files and how to do it, I'll be REALLY grateful!
Thanks for reading and please help me keep my job! haha

Cheers!

This should be really easy to do with powershell.
copy-item to copy and paste the files
get-childitem to get the directory structure, make it write that to a .txt document.
You can also get it to compare whats in the text document with the current directory structure, and if they are different pop up with the "NEW ARCHIVE" Message.

If this is something you'd be interested in I can do it for you if you let me know, what OS you will be running it on and if give me the current directory structure so I can replicate it on my end. Or I can just keep pointing you in the right direction if you wanted to take a shot at it yourself.
