Here is a script that will count file in a directory. If there is more than X file in the directory a event will be generated in the local event viewer. You can create a event rule that runs the script and a collection rule that collections event ID 2 from your machine. The local event will have event ID 2, you can also add criteria to check if description includes “There is more than”.
In the following example the script will monitor if C:\ have more than 2 files.
Set fs = CreateObject(“Scripting.FileSystemObject”)
folderName = “c:\”
numbers = fs.GetFolder(folderName).Files.Count
if (numbers > 2) Then
Const EVENT_WARNING = 2
Set objShell = CreateObject(“Wscript.Shell”)
objShell.LogEvent 2, “There are more than 2 files in the directory. The directory is ” & folderName & “. Number of files are ” & numbersÂ End IfÂ
