I'm wondering if there's a application that alerts me if someone (in my network) access a shared folder?

I can see the sessions opened in Computer Management but i want to know if someone's accessing/sneeking in my shared folders.

What would make me smile is a taskbar popup alert when someone accesses my shares.

Thank U All..

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

You could do this with WMI scripting - set up a temporary event consumer which watches for creation of Win32_ServerConnection instances.

The WQL would look something like:

select * from __InstanceCreationEvent where TargetInstance ISA 'Win32_ServerConnection'
