Last Changed Files is a portable software for Windows NT based systems like Windows XP or Windows Vista that will display the last 100 changed files of a selected folder or drive. It will automatically scan the Documents and Settings folder of the logged on user after execution. That location can be changed by clicking on the Browse button on the top toolbar. It is basically possible to pick any local or remote storage device and display the last 100 changed files.
The software program will display the name of the file, its location, the file date and file size. Every file can be double-clicked to execute or edit it right away depending on the file type of the software. Using Last Changed Files can be useful to determine if and when files that reside in a specific directory have been changed in the Windows operating system.
It is possible to exclude folders from being searched but there does not seem to be a way to exclude files from the process.
The software has a size of only 261 Kilobytes and can be executed from local and remote hard drives and other storage devices.Advertisement
