Monitoring usage (or lack thereof) of a specific directory

Hello all!

I am trying to figure out if there is a way to accomplish a request from our business owner. The basic concept is to have a sensor running that checks a directory of a Windows machine. If the directory has not been written to within (x) time frame (ie 1hr, 2hrs, etc) then the sensor enters a failed state.

I would greatly appreciate any tips I could get to get this working!
