Just one more useless program to suck up space and resources.

Well, this is one I will have to pass on because it appears to be something I would get myself into trouble with due to my lack of experience in this degree of technology. Thanks GOTD for the offering and thanks folks for the comments.

Well, today it's free, and it could be interesting to try it out. However, I allready have a fine little gem for monitoring my hardware - Moo0 System Monitor, and even it hasn't been updated since late 2013, it's very accurate on all Windows versions. Since it's portable, you can just check it out at the home page, but don't use their dl link, since it's CNet's domain. I'll advise you to get it at Softpedia. Greets from Denmark

And what are you supposed to do when presented with a huge number of files. !00's and 100's of file changes occur simply by say...opening up a browser.

I don't get it.

We had diskpulse installed few months ago and removed it the next day, reason:
It created huge useless files and info that jammed our SQL server and the email server.
It happen when windows was doing updates overnight and created d-base files of all of the changes including the 0 bytes files and just the regular replacement of old files.
There were tens of thousands of files mark with red dots and marked for deletion and every single file was sent to our mail server as separate notice.
It took out IT department all day to re-load from archives to restore our SQL d-base and server.

Recording everything can be good but comes with a price to be paid down the road. It slowed the server and created useless file access record that can be detrimental to everyday use of a computer system.

jebby, Great review. Thanks for sharing that, which is one of the main reasons, that I use MooO System Monitor portable - as you see in //comment 1/ as down voted ;-)

jebby, Please take a look at HDD Guardian, which is open source. It could be interesting to hear your opinion, since you were kind to give today's offer the first sufficient review.

It also tells lies... it calls updates to the NTFS last accessed time record "Modified" that is wrong the file was not modified just it's meta-data was touched with current date and time... the files last modified date is not changed because the file IS unmodified.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

TK, more lies... in the "Charts" in default configuration it displays Number of changes per extension... for MDB extensions it reports "52 Files" ... THAT IS WRONG it was 52 changes on ONE MDB file! The only MDB file being accessed is:

19-Feb-2017 13:33:57 Modified 677.92 MB Username C:\ProgramData\Privacyware\Privatefirewall\pflog7.mdb

too much inacurate information from this program and not enough relevant information makes it into a novelty item, not a serious diagnostic tool for me. I am glad this does not install itself as a service or I'd be forced to uninstall it...

In my opinion there is a major omission in the reporting of change events... it does not show the PID or process name that invoked the change event! For me that is critical information, as critical or more critical than NTAUTHORITY class that this calls "Owner". e.g. on non-rootkit malware it would show the malware executable, on root-kit malware the lack of process name on the change, because the kernel is concealing the file, would signal a root-kit and warrant in depth investigation.

For those that have persitent problems with the giveaway wrapper and issues with the giveaway being an old version of the product and not the current version 9.4.26 you can download the Pro trial and register that with the license key provided in the readme.txt in the giveaway zip bundle. I put "GOTD" in the top field in the registration applet but I suspect you can put in anything you like.
Note I experienced a smartscreen warning on the files downloaded from their site, that I chose to ignore, that the files were not commonly downloaded and they were not digitally signed.

https://www.virustotal.com/en-gb/file/50e36dd628ab60042575a6a7c26697f32b52316402c18479d28f927c6c5d4887/analysis/1487508299/

all engines report clean.

Hope that helps.

Have not downloaded yet.
1) Would this show what happens - what files are created or changed - when a new program is installed on the PC?
2) If yes, could it show HOW a file was changed? I am guessing not and that the info might not be useful anyway.
3) I'm just a real estate lawyer who keeps four PCs and two routers running. Workgroups, not domains. How is this useful to me?
Thanks.

glnz, no it wont be any good for tracking an installation as it does not track the source process for the file system changes so you have to guess/deduce what process was likely to have caused the alledged file system change. And no it does not show how files are changed either. I doubt it will be of any use to you in your day to day operations.

There is a problem with this giveaways description it clearly says

"DiskPulse is a real-time disk change monitoring solution allowing one to monitor one or more disks or directories, save reports and disk change monitoring statistics, export detected changes to a centralized SQL database,"

BUT their versions v feature matrix at http://www.diskpulse.com/diskpulse_product_versions.html clearly states NO for "Export Reports to an SQL Database" and "Centralized Reports Database" those are features of the more expensive editions! There is no other mention of Databases, SQL or otherwise in the matrix.

Even if this performs as described in the feature matrix I suspect I will get more use out of sysinternals always free Process Monitor...

Apologies, this is not about the DiskPulse, as I already bought Hard Disk Sentinel when it was offered as a give away some while back.

Downloaded Sysgauge, which is shown a as a free utility, but on running, it immediately produces an error,
SCA_DsmManager:AddCounter: Cannot ad a counter - 0(ERR-100188)

If you click OK, it logs the error then immediately produces another error, but never lets you into the main screen to see what is causing the problem.

Any one else tried it?

Brian Hughes, I just downloaded SysGauge and installed and executed via the last page of the installer and all counters loaded and it seems to work ok except it reports memory usage at 52.2% and Core temp reports 61% memory usage of my 8gig installed RAM. So it looks good but I'm not confident that its readings are accurate.

One thing is missing from the description of the product, here but also on the publisher's website : what would be the point of all that monitoring ? What are the benefits ? What type of users does this address ?

This looks like the old diskmon utility with a nice GUI. Can't really see a use for it, except perhaps snooping on changes made by another user. Maybe someone else has a better reason to run this software in the background.
