Does a save to a scss file automatically update the css file?

I just started working with scss a few days ago (with webstorm), and it seem to auto generate/update the css file after saving the scss file. Unfortunately, when I save the scss file now, no changes are made to the css file. I was working on these files from a different location, so I am guessing that the webstorm settings might be different. I thought file watchers might have somehting to do with it, but I am not sure what goes in the program field. I really have no idea why this is happening.

Any help would be appreciated.

yes, indeed this has something to do with file watchers - when configured, they listen to changes in SCSS file and run the SCSS compiler each time the file is changed. What do you mean saying that you are working from a different location?
