Yeah except unfortunately the .Net FileWatcher class doesn't always work
as it should. Much as I love .Net I don't like the FileSystemWatcher

There's also a Java class called jpoller that you could try. I just
looked at it today for a Java project.

As for the OP then, I would scratch the polling concept and implement
more of a FileSystemWatcher interface. This would take 0 CPU when no
changes are occuring and would catch all changes immediately, best of
both worlds.
