No it can't.
But whenever I need to monitor a folder for changes I just write a simply low priority script which looks for changes to the contents and then runs a Rsync on it.
In Windows I simply do a DIR of the folder contents and save this to a file. Then the script compares it again.
Easy to do this with a BASH script loop I would have thought?
