We have an external site which is taking the monitor 25 minutes to process believe the issue is the number of directories structure as below


The last number if the version of the files.

So the issue is that keep one month files on site so MFT has to check say 100 folder x 25 day per month so monitor has to change directory 2500 times.

What is the best way to approach this to collect new file on site? If possible just monitoring the YYYYMMDD level would be helpful.

In your situation, it may be better to use a scheduled job that calls a project.
In the project you could specify the yyyyMMdd using the Timestamp task.
Then just process that folder.
