Yes, both the ReadDirectoryChanges and the FindFirstNotification API's
require a process to be running to track all the changes from time A to
time B.
That is why a TortoiseSVN with its explorer shell integration is well
suited for this type of operation.

The only way under Windows to track file or directory changes without
running a process is by using the Change Journal on NTFS file systems only.
