ShareWatcher is a handy network application for shared-units monitoring. It supports local, LAN and FTP, enabling network administrators and even common users to know who and when is accessing the monitored files.
The program's interface looks clear with a typical software utility design, which enables easy access to basic functions as well as advanced functions especially created for experienced LAN administrators. In addition, the installation procedure requires minimal user's actions, and it includes the needed elements to run as stand-alone, once the routine is completed.
The monitoring setup is an easy procedure, thanks to its intuitive interface; at the beginning users should select a folder/FTP to monitor, with filtering options; for example, it allows to select a given folder, including sub-folders and only HTML files. The previous sample is a typical auditing scenario for webmasters.
Moreover, it allows to define the monitoring users or ignoring them by using an exclusion list.
This software enables to set diverse notification's methods, based on events, including email and sounds at the computer where is running the software. Moreover, advanced users can create custom commands (external programs execution) to be fired at predefined events.
This application is automatically loaded at the system startup, running from the Windows tray in a silent mode as a service. It doesn't interfere with other programs and consumes minimal system resources, making it suitable for servers as well as desktop computers.
Our testers installed ShareWatcher on a Windows server, monitoring a local-shared folder and a remote FTP; it was able to detect file additions, removals and editions, detailing date/time and the user involved. Finally, we found this software useful, especially for network administrators and even webmasters to perform file auditing on LAN and FTP servers.
