Disk Pulse can help you keep your computer safe, and alert you of possible changes made to your computer's disks. It's easy-to-use interface allows you to monitor one or more disks or directories to detect changes made in your file system, making this is a useful security tool to use alongside your firewall, antivirus softwall and other security applications.
The program monitors in real time, and can display files being modified while the modification is in process. The interface also allows you the option to create a pie-chart graph showing the files being modified by file extension. It can work with up to 2 million files and with disk storage capacity of up to 2 terabytes, making it suitable for most modern computers. It also comes with support for both long and Unicode file names and lets users establish up to three profiles, as well as select what disk change events to monitor.
In spite of the impressive capabilities of Disk Pulse, its system requirements are such that it can even be installed on many older machines. It only requires a CPU of 500 MHz or higher, system memory of 256 MB, and 25 MB of free disk space. It will run on Windows 2000 or later.
The limitations of Disk Pulse are few. Mainly, it doesn't send email notifications, it can't create rule sets and it can't perform custom actions.
If you're wondering whether to update from a previous version, this latest edition adds extended statistics charts to PDF reports. These display the number of file system changes by file extension, by change type and per file owner. In addition the look and feel has been improved and several minor bugs have been fixed.
If keeping your computer safe and secure concerns you, give Disk Pulse a try.
