Editors' review

This application lets you selectively monitor changes to your directories, but even just watching a few folders can lead to information overload. FileDog's limited buttons let you quickly start or stop monitoring and configure the program. It's easy to include or exclude specific folders with the basic browser or you can just tick the check box to monitor all folders on a selected drive. Check boxes also make it a quick process to select what the program monitors, and you can choose from four events, including file creation and deletion, and eight specific changes, including directory and file renaming. Information is presented in plain columns on the main interface, and includes date and time, event type, change type, and the path of changed folders and files. FileDog adds a useful color scheme to help identify changes, but even selecting a single folder and a few areas to watch fills the monitoring pane in seconds. This real-time-monitoring tool provides a wealth of information for the advanced user, but will probably overwhelm the novice or intermediate user.
