Talking Real-Time Directory Watcher - WatchDog.exe

RealTime Directory Watcher


  • Here is a tiny tool that allows you to see the changes in a folder in real time.
  • This means that when you give a folder to "watchdog.exe" it shows the changes in real time that take place in that folder in its console.
  • Those changes can be "delete, modify or create" of files or folders.



When we update a game, we may have no idea what files are being changed or added. So "watchdog.exe" allows us to see real time changes when using a specific folder.


How to Use it:

1. Just drag a folder and drop it into the "watchdog.exe".
2. Or use commandline.

Code:
watchdog.exe <input-folder> /Log=<log-file.txt>

example:
watchdog.exe "D:\Games\GTA5" /Log="D:\Games\my-GTA5-Log.txt"

It could be perfect with some changes:

- ability to copy watched files into another directory (or doing a command on them)
- ability to log for specific event, for example only log newly added files.

It would be interesting if at the end it showed the final size that the folder was able to archive
example:
file_x [created] (20mb)
file_y [deleted] (5mb)
file_z [created] (15mb)

Final modifyed folder size= 40mb
