NetShareMonitor is an ultra-simplistic Windows application that gives you the possibility to protect files and documents shared over the network. It pops up notifications as soon as remote users are connected to your computer.
Monitor active sessions, along with accessed and shared files
The main application window has a neatly organized structure and it is split into tree separate panels dedicated to active sessions, accessed files, and shared files, respectively.
You can check out details regarding the remote host, user, number of opened files, along with the start, active and idle time when it comes to active sessions. Similarly, it is possible to investigate the full path, user, date and time, together with the access type for each accessed file. Lastly, NetShareMonitor lets you learn more about the shared name, description, number of connections, and shared file path for each shared file.
Export information and customize app settings
The software utility lets you select any entries from the list and copy them to the Clipboard by opening the right-click menu, refresh information, as well as export the report to file for further evaluation.
As far as program settings are concerned, you can ask the tool to automatically run at every Windows startup and minimize to tray until further notice, disable alert sounds and tray icon blinking on new sessions, deactivate session or accessed file monitoring, modify the default log file’s location on the disk, and more.
Evaluation and conclusion
As expected, the software utility had minimal impact on computer performance in our tests, thanks to the fact that it required low CPU and RAM to work properly. It had a good response time and did not hang, crash or pop up error messages.
Taking into account its rich set of options and customization preferences, NetShareMonitor should meet the requirements of most users looking for a reliable monitoring tool for files shared over the network.
