AFAIK, you can't do that. The FileSystemWatcher relies on Windows notifications over the local machine or network which is not supported over FTP.

Maybe polling is a good option...

Not pooling, but polling. E.g. write some code that logs into the FTP server and tries to detect changes manually. Then write a scheduling mechanism (or use a Windows Service or a schedueld task) to repeatedly call that code yourself.

Cheers,

Imar
