Editors' reviewThis application keeps watch over your system, although we'd like to see it go one step further. DirMonitor's organized display is much appreciated, since its learning curve could prove steep for some. Mimicking high-power surveillance equipment, this program skulks undetected in the background under password protection. It monitors, records, and notifies you from the system tray when changes to your folders, files, registry, or computer services are made. You can schedule backups to maintain current settings and DirMonitor will automatically back up whenever a modification is made. It performed well during tests, logging the files created, actions taken, the file type, and modification and creation dates. We're impressed with its capabilities, and it only misses a file/folder lock to effectively halt unwanted modifications to specified areas. Other than that, we'd recommend this 15-day trial program to anyone who simply needs to watch over things.
Monitor all activities carried out on files, folders, registry keys, processes and even services. Everything will be placed in an encrypted Log. You can attach Triggers to each activity, which can launch any file you want when such an activity occurs. It's even possible to send information about which file(s) have changed to that external program. Other features include password protection to prevent unauthorized access to DirMonitor, Wizards, plug-ins, and Scripting support. The latter makes it possible to control DirMonitor by use of plain text files. Possible applications are virus detection, cleaning you PC after surfing the Net and monitoring activity on your computer.
Version 18.104.22.16893 adds services monitoring, updates registry monitoring, enhances scripts.
