Linux client is an easy "fix" then. I'll have to get cygwin grep to play
nicely with my windows batch file I guess - I don't think I can pipe can I?
Currently I just > the output into a text file along with a lot of other
info like times etc which is emailed when it's finished. *nix is so much
nicer for this sort of thing...

Matt: Yes it wouldn't show new/renamed directories but only if they were
empty, right? If they had new files as well, you'd see they existed. If the
directory changed (i.e. files in it changed) it would show up too. 

I'm not concerned about directories changing really unless I'm missing
something you're thinking of Matt. For me it's more the files that are
changing, so the grep solution will probably do what *I* want.
