10-Strike Connection Monitor
Shared Folder Access Monitor and Audit
10-Strike Connection Monitor is a network share access monitoring software for Microsoft Windows networks. Audit access to your shared folders. Watch who gets info your files in a real-time!
The program generates screen, sound, and e-mail notifications on connections to shared resources, and maintains a log file with information on remote user and computer name, accessed file and folder name, date, type of access, and so on. It also allows you to enable and disable access to network shares when necessary using the program's context menu in the system tray.
After starting, the program hides into the system tray displaying the program icon with the context menu. With its help, you can display the program's access logs, configure settings and monitoring alerts with notifications, stop or start again the Server service which provides the network access to your shared folders via NetBios (SMB).
The program supports many types of events which can be monitored, recorded to the alert log, and alerted via email, sound, and other notification methods when remote users access your shared folders and files. Learn more about monitoring events and alerts...
The Pro version of the 10-Strike Connection Monitor program is implemented as a service. For servers and computers which can work without being logged on, it is better to use the share access monitoring service than the regular GUI application. Learn more about the Pro version...

With Our Shared Folder Access Monitoring Program, You Can:
- Constantly monitor access to your shared folders, files, printers, and the registry in a real-time. When a new connection occurs, the program will notify you with a sound and a message window in the upper right corner of the screen (or with a balloon tip in the system tray).
- Audit access and changes to a shared folder. Configure "Alerts" and receive screen, sound, and e-mail notifications on connections to a certain shared folder or file. Be notified when a connection to your shared folder occurs by a certain user, from a certain computer, or from a computer with certain IP or MAC address.
- Maintain the access log file. All connections to your shared folders are recorded to the log file (it stores the following information: connection date and time, remote computer name, remote user name, files and folders opened by remote user, file access type).
- Be notified when someone copies a lot of data or opens too many files.
- Be notified when someone deletes files in an important folder.
- Be notified when someone accesses an important folder.
- Disconnect users who download large files automatically according to the blacklist settings.
Use Cases on Share Access Monitoring Events Supported by the Program
1. For example, you expect your co-worker to write an important file to your shared resource. In this case, you need to configure the "User connection" alert and specify a username in the alert settings. When the desired connection is established, the program will notify you.
2. A server has a share with important files and folders and you would like to audit remote users' access to that share. Create the "Access to resource" alert, specify that important folder, and all users accessing the folder will be logged.
3. A server has a share with important files and folders and you would like to know what files and folder were deleted, created, or renamed. Create the "File deletion/creation" alert, specify that important folder, and all file modifications will be logged.
4. A server has a share with important project files your team working with. The normal working process is when your team members work with some part of the files, only with necessary ones. You would not like some user to copy or scan the entire project folder. You can configure the "Opened files count" alert in this case. When someone decides to copy all the folder, the program will notify you or an administrator about that and you will be able to warn that employee.
