What's new?
  • Added new option to the automatic export feature: Don't overwrite a file created in previous sessions, but create a new filename with numeric counter. For example: If you specify 'c:\temp\fcv.txt' as export filename, the first created file will be 'c:\temp\fcv_1.txt'. After you exit from FolderChangesView and then run it again, the next file will be 'c:\temp\fcv_2.txt', and so on...

Very good software, a bit easier then file monitor by sysinternals. Easy to understand

smaragdus on 2016-06-23 23:34

I think that the instructions are outdated:
Moo0 File Monitor version 1.11 automatically saves "SaveData.xml" inside "savedata" folder on first run.

@smaragdus: confirmed. Updating entry ...

@ zvikai: Thanks ... and updated.

FYI, Watch 4 Folder freeware version now limited to monitoring just one folder -- for accuracy, it should be renamed to Watch 1 Folder...

Filemon v7.04

Checker on 3 Aug 2014

FileMon monitors and displays file system activity on a system in real-time. Its advanced capabilities make it a powerful tool for exploring the way Windows works, seeing how applications use the files and DLLs, or tracking down problems in system or application file configurations. Filemon's timestamping feature will show you precisely when every open, read, write or delete, happens, and its status column tells you the outcome.

Note: Main site link offline (replaced by Process Monitor -- thanks WolfGhost). Linking to Softpedia.

Category:
System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: Windows registry. I am accepting it as portable on the assumption that it will only be run occasionally during troubleshooting.
Unicode support: No
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch Filemon.exe.
