For example one might be interested in monitoring the changes in a folder and backup the contents of the folder in an automated manner as soon as some new files are created in the folder, some files are deleted and/or some files have changed . In this case user might be interested to execute some backup/synchronization utility as soon as some changes are detected in the folder contents. There are many free utilities available for Windows that can help in the above mentioned scenario.
