File Age/Date Monitoring

This monitoring check allows you to monitor a file's age (or date/time). You can configure the monitoring of a file's last access or modification date. When the date is changed, the program will notify you about that.

The validation logic can be customized. For example, a check can be considered as passed not only when the file date changes, but also when it remains unchanged from the previous check.

If you want to monitor date of a file which is stored on a share you can provide authorization credentials for accessing the share.


Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8.1/10/11, Server 2003/2008/2012/2016/2019/2022 supported.
