Directory Monitor Utility allows to monitor a selected folder (and subfolders) for changes. You can select the criteria to monitor from a list, including file name changes, size changes, attribute changes, time changes and more. The program then works in background and generates a HTML log of file system changes. It also offers a statistical overview by clicking on the tray icon while it is running.
