Specifying Watched Folders

A watched folder is a folder location on your computer that Organizer automatically checks for photos to add to the Organizer workspace. By default, your My Pictures (XP) or Pictures (Vista) folder is always watched. If you have photos and other media files in other locations, you can add them to the watched folder list. If you no longer want to watch a folder, you can quickly remove it from the list. In addition, you can also set options to watch all sub-folders within a watched folder, and to specify how you want to add new files found in the watched folders, either by notification or automatically.
