Using File System and Timer Components 

File system and scheduling components allow you to interact with file system and directory-level resources and raise events at scheduled intervals. FileSystemWatcher component instances allow you to watch for changes to directories and files and react when they occur. The Timer component allows you to set up simple event-raising schedules and carry out associated processing.
