Windows 7: get an alert whenever a network file or folder has been changed

01 Sep 2011   #1

Windows 7 Starter (32 bit)
 
 
get an alert whenever a network file or folder has been changed

Hi,

I'm currently doing an internship in an office, and we all use windows 7 enterprise.

The management didn't give us the possibility to install any software, because we don't know the administrator password and we don't have installing privileges.

We need some way to alert each other whenever a shared network file or folder has been changed, with a pop up message or a text log, or an email... there's plenty of third party freeware software that does this, but we can't install anything

Is there some way to do it with the built-in windows tools?

Thank you in advance

Hi,

Unfortunately, I don't think there is a way. If Windows could do it, it would require some elevated privleges, and you don't appear to have that.

The best bet is probably to lobby your management, and explain your requirement.

Good luck,
Golden
