Folder Watchdog Service (FWDSVC)


Want to get informed when something happens to a file or folder at your own or a remote computer? As soon as anything changes in specified folder or its subfolder the program will create a notification email and send to specified addressees.

Need to watch for a special file of the directory? Set include or exclude masks* and alerts will contain related data only. You can also suppress undesired notifications by means of different filters.

Get alerted when planned file event did not happen - just switch to "alert on no event" mode.

These key features are accompanied with schedule support, customizable logging, email templates which can be easily changed by user and the smallest footprint on your hard disk - less than half of a megabyte!
