Watch isn't working or updating the css File

So Ive done the sass --watch command and it brings this up

Sass is watching for changes. Press Ctrl-C to stop. write ./test.css write ./test.css.map [Listen warning]: Listen will be polling for changes. Learn more at https://github.com/guard/listen#polling-fallback.

I edited the Test.scss file and its seems to not have picked up the change. Anyone have any answers?

Yeah I had the same issue. Try putting your test.scss file in a different directory. I initially had my test.scss file saved to the desktop, and watch wouldn't update the test.css file when I saved the test.scss file. But then I put my test.scss file in a new folder named sass and it worked perfectly. Not sure why...oh well!
