Directory Monitor

Finally uploaded my Directory Monitor application!

* Monitor directories for file changes, modifications, deletions and new files.
* Monitor local directories or network shares (including hidden shares).
* Include/exclude filtering on files being monitored.
* Optionally execute an application when an event occurs.
* Quickly tell if a directory is available and being monitored.
* Balloon notifications whenever an event is fired.
* Auto updating, import/export and more.

Latest version (2011/05/07)
Lots of new features with an improved UI.
More than likely the last release on .NET 3.5. I need to move to .NET 4.0 for certain performance features (such as memory mapped files) so that I can support really large log files.

Install it from here or check it out (with new screenshots) on my main website at DevEnterprise.NET

Update: Directory Monitor makes it on Softpedia with some sweet screenshots. It was also awarded the 100% clean award.

Update 2: Updated to optionally run an application when an event fires on a directory. The full path and file name gets passed to the app as well so you can use %1 and such inside batch files.

Update 3: Directory Monitor gets mentioned on My Digital Life.

Update 4: Directory Monitor gets mentioned on Life Rocks 2.0.

Command Line E-mailer

New application to send an e-mail from the command line. I found that most applications available for download on the internet were not capable of performing all the common e-mail sending functionality. This application covers all the bases I required.

* Attach multiple files to the e-mail.
* Send an e-mail to multiple recipients (including CC and BCC).
* Create e-mail message from a text file.
* Send e-mails in HTML format.
* Provide authentication information to the server and optionally send over SSL.
* Friendly error messages and input validation.
