Pros: It does monitor the designated drives/folders you list in the tool.

Cons: It tries to access the Internet, for what reason, I have no idea and not for an update, but while it is monitoring the folders. THIS IS NOT WISE FOR THE SE TO INCORPORATE INTO HIS SOFTWARE. Be sure you have EXCELLENT TO GOOD SECURITY SOFTWARE INSTALLED before you use this tool.

Other Thoughts: I am an SE/retired and there is NO reason for any software to send info outbound from your PC unless IT ASKS YOU FOR PERMISSION. This software does not ask you and therefore is suspicious. Norton 360 AND 360 Total Security does not allow it to do so and contains it. Peerblock prevents it, as well.
