The System Change Log service monitors your disks for changes, and records a detailed log of file activity separate from the regular Windows event logs. System Change Log allows easy security review of changes to your critical files without wading through the extraneous and cryptic Event Viewer audit records generated by standard system auditing.
System Change Log works with or without Windows's auditing enabled to record file and folder creation, deletion, modification, renaming, and security descriptor changes. If standard auditing is enabled, System Change Log can also report the user account of the person making the change (see the information on the Track User Information option below).
The System Change Log Control Panel applet lets you easily configure all aspects of SCL's activities, including which types of events to monitor. See at a glance and control what is being monitored on your system without painstakingly using Explorer or other tools to apply individual audit attributes to the desired disks or directories!
The System Change Log is kept in standard text format so it can be easily archived or imported into other programs such as custom databases or spreadsheets for analysis. No need to bother with manually exporting log extracts, or worrying about reading incompatible Event Viewer log formats on different versions of Windows.
Version 3.1: 32 or 64-bit XP, 2003/R2, Vista, 2008/R2, and Windows 7
For support on older version of Windows, see the version 2.4 documentation page.
