Are you trying to monitor a directory on the ipMonitor system or on a remote system? If the latter, make sure to specify a UNC name such as \\server\sharename\directory\filename.ext and also make sure to give the Monitor a Credential that points to a domain account with access to that share.
Let me know if this helps or not.
