PDF Print E-mail

You may know that Windows constantly changes, renames, modifies and removes certain files while you perform tasks using any User or System utility. It’s certainly impossible to keep track of all the files that are being crearted, changed, deleted from the system. However, if you want to monitor the files for changes in a particular folder, check out the previously covered Folder Monitor (reviewed here), Directory Monitor (reviewed here) and Watch 4 Folder (reviewed here). File monitoring applications help users view the changes made to the specified set of files without having to manually check each file’s property sheet. TheFolderSpy is a simple, yet powerful folder monitoring application that allows you to monitor multiple folders for changes, and notifies you whenever it detects changes in files’ contents/attributes. Using the application, you can easily monitor files to check whether it’s been renamed, modified or even deleted from a specified folder, or not. Apart from providing you with an on screen notification, it also allows you to automatically send information about the change to a user-specified email address. More on TheFolderSpy after the break.

Upon first start, you need to configure the application for monitoring the required folders. From the Setup window, you can Add Item, Edit, Remove, Save Items list and Setup Email.
