Windows 7: software that logs files added, deleted or modified

software that logs files added, deleted or modified

Hi guys & gals,

I'm trying to find a software that can compare files that are added, deleted or modified. Not necessarily done by installers only, but also by programs that download updates, etc.

So, the program will first index all the files throughout whole system/partition/drive. Then after executing/launching/installing a program, index again and highlight the differences.

Is there such a program? If yes, what is the name to such a program?

Thank you
Henry

Advanced Uninstaller Pro does exactly that (Advanced Uninstaller PRO | A Swiss Army Knife for PC Users). Among other things, it has an option called "installation monitor" which can track what programs really do to the systems. While it says "installer", it really catches any changes done by any program though.
It works by taking sort of an "image" at the beginning, then running the program, then taking a second "image" afterwards and compares and present the differences in a report. It can't be more similar to what you described you wanted

Hi Alej,

Thanks for the suggestion. Let me give that a try.

I remembered I came across a freeware before. In the meantime, I'll give that program a try.

Thank you

The one I'm mentioning is freeware already.
