I am looking for freeware/open source application which can monitor the shared folder on local network. I did use some freeware application , But stupid enough to forget its name :)

Thanks in Advance.

PS: @Shark, I Would like to see who are all currently using that particular folder and even notify when some changes happened.

What do you want exactly? See which folder are shared on the network? Or be warned when the content of a shared folder changes? –  Snark Nov 4 '09 at 8:43

If you're looking for a tool to alert you when someone is accessing your shared folders, see this article:
Monitor and Notify when Shared Folders being Accessed

Or this article for a tool that can tell what file the user is actually accessing and can log it down for future reference:
Track Who Modified or Deleted Files in Your Shared Folder

Read the Globinch.com article on good tools to Monitor Shared Folders and Network Folders in Windows and Get Notified

Can you copy and paste information from links, instead of JUST the link? It prevents links going dead and answers not having direction later on in the future –  Canadian Luke Jun 8 '12 at 18:19
