    File change monitoring software + what changed it?


    Does anyone know of a free or trial utility that would allow me to monitor an individual file for changes and will report what software or process name changed it? It's acceptable if it only monitors all the files in a folder.

    There is a program capable of monitoring file access activities within a folder and it's called process monitor.
