Rules on watch folders: (I've been in a rules-y mood lately, must be due to me being ill)
  1. If you're using a temporary watch folder (Wizard), the Wizard must be remain open and in the Monitoring stage
  2. Only new files will be "seen" by the watch folder - existing files that are there will not be queued for conversion
  3. Files are converted only when they're completed (ie, it won't start conversion during copy or capture - only after it is complete) - there are a number of reasons for this, but it's mostly locking and compression-related.
