Events Checking For Directories That Don't Exist

Does anyone have a clever solution for how to address file events that have invalid directories?  

We seem to keep running up against this where on occasion in Production we will find a file event that's been continuously running, not finding any file, but it's because the directory doesn't exist.  Thankfully this is rare.

The more pressing issue is that we have users who do this in QA and have 50+ events, checking every minute mind you, for files in directories that don't exist.

For jobs, I know we have HEADER & TRAILERS in client 0 that we can insert UC4 scripting into the job, but I'm not aware of anything similar for file events.  

Ideally, we would like the file event to end if the directory is invalid.  

Just wondering if anyone else has had this happen and if you have any solutions for how to address it.  Thanks!
