DiskPulse
Monitor file and folder changes on your hard drive in real time

DiskPulse is a handy hard drive monitor that can display the changes being made to any drive or directory in real time.

Is there a lot of unexplained activity on your hard drive, for instance? Just click the Monitor button, add drive C: to the list of locations, and click Start. Right away you'll see lists of files as they're created, modified or deleted, which should give you a much better idea of what's going on.

Of course there's always a lot of hard drive accesses occurring with any busy PC, so it might be hard to pick out the more dubious activities. DiskPulse helps by also displaying a list of changes sorted by file extension, though, so at a glance you can see that, say, TMP files are responsible for the majority of hard drive activities. And double-clicking on a particular extension will allow you to view those file modifications only.

If that's not enough, then a simple Charts window will display reports to illustrate details like the "changed disk space per extension", for example.

And if you don't want to monitor your entire drive, that's not a problem: the program allows you to monitor specific folders only, and you can also instruct it to monitor specific events only. So you might opt to record only deleted files and folders, say.

The authors also produce several other DiskPulse versions that add more capabilities and features. They're able to monitor changes to specific file types, for instance; send email notifications of particular events; execute custom commands; produce HTML, CSV and text reports, and more. These commercial versions are priced from $25, and you can read more on the DiskPulse site.

What's new in 11.2?

- Adds the ability to search changes in multiple disk monitoring reports
- Adds the ability to save consolidated reports
- Improves the disk monitoring reports dialog
- Improves the file search operations
- Improves the file search dialog
- Fixes a number of bugs

Verdict:

Sysinternals tools like Process Monitor provide more details about exactly what's happening on your PC, but if you only want to monitor hard drive changes then DiskPulse is an easy-to-use way to get the job done

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
