If you execute a batch file or PowerShell script when an event happens you want to use "%~1" and not %1 to catch the file that was modified. Because batch files will treat anything between spaces as separate parameters, the application will enclose the path and file name in quotes automatically if the path contains a space.

EG: If the path is C:\NoSpaces\File.txt then it will be used as is and %1 will contain the path and file name correctly. If the path is C:\With Spaces\File 1.txt then it will be passed as "C:\With Spaces\File 1.txt". Ensure you access this variable using "%~1" to remove the quotes that may be passed in and wrap them with your own.
