Have you ever needed to know exactly when a file or folder changes on your system? Ever needed to monitor log file changes, watch incoming files on a server or simply wanted to monitor changes on a local hard drive or network share? Then Always Watching! is for you!
Always Watching! allows you to watch any folder on your file system or available network share for changes to file size, modification date, filename or foldername. When a change occurs, each watch can notify you independently via a popup window (otherwise known as a messagebox), a flashing tray icon, email (via smtp internet email) or by executing programs of your choice via command line. Always Watching!? is fully configurable - a network or systems administrators dream! Download your fully-function, risk-free, 15-day trial!
Main Features in Always Watching!:
-Watch any folder on your local hard drive or available network share - easily browse to each folder from within the Add Watch window.
-Customizable notifications including a popup window with auto dismiss options, a flashing tray icon that will queue up notifications until you want to see them, Windows NetSend, SMTP internet email with customizable "from name" and "from address", and Command Line, allwoing you to execute and pass change details to the programs, scripts or batch files of your choice.
-Optional delay. There are some folders you can watch that would simply get annoying with too many notifications. Because of this, Always Watching!? allows you to set a mandatory delay period between individual watches, minimizing repeat notifications. Or, leave the delay off and receive exact, timely notifications.
-Watch your target folder only, or easily include all subdirectories.
-New flexible auto-startup options.
-New file filter option makes sure you're only notified of files you care about
-New faster, easier-to-use browse dialog.
