Directory Monitor (32-bit)
Watch file creations, changes and deletions on your PC in real time

Directory Monitor is an interesting tool for watching particular folders and telling you about files being created, changed or deleted there.

Launch the program and click Add to give it a folder - either local, or a network share - which you'd like to be monitored.

You can also indicate the events you're interested in ("New Files", "Modifications", "Deletions" or "Renames"), and may optionally choose to monitor subfolders.

And there's even an option to launch a particular application whenever an event occurs.

This all worked well in our tests. We pointed the program at our system drive, ran various applications and Windows tasks, and were able to watch as files were created, modified and deleted.

If you need more power then plugins are available from $5 to play a sound, send an email or write to a database when a particular event occurs.

In addition, a Pro version (from $99/ year) includes all the plugins, runs as a service, displays the user/ application/ process behind each change, uses Snapshots to determine changes even when a share is down or the machine was off, and more.

Version 2.12.2.2 brings (Changelog)

- Removed Chinese (Traditional) language strings (Ticket #1716).
- Fix clipboard issues on HTML control (Ticket #1753).
- Fix configuration reset issues with shared-user mode (Ticket #1780).
- Pause the inactivity timer in the service when the UI starts and log failed timestamp file writes.

Verdict:

Directory Monitor provides a straightforward and highly configurable way to track file system activity on your PC

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.
