Would be great if the software would allow copy/move/delete file actions as an event instead of having to create/maintain a .bat file to execute upon trigger.4 votes

Monitor files for encryption to minimize effect of Ransomware2 votes
This is a very common use case for a lot of users. The actions that users take however varies quite a bit based on their own requirements. Some people configure firewall rules, some run removal tools, some shut-down the PC etc, in almost all cases and email is sent. For us to provide this configuration and necessary filters out -of-the-box would require a significant investment in continued research of crypto malware in order to keep monitoring effective.
That being said, we may still pursue this because when configured correctly, Directory Monitor is very effective as an early detection system for crypto viruses and has already been successful in numerous live installations. With enough support for this idea we may take this on.
I have the idea to translate the tool into the german language.

A simple FTP uploader plugin that will attach and and push new/changed files to an FTP server.
Still thinking about what should happen to deleted files, should they also be removed on the FTP server? The plugin will have similar functionality to the emailer with regard to options. Need to be careful about performance when there is a high volume of events. Errors can easily occur as well if files go missing during uploads or connectivity becomes a problem.35 votes
Generate PDF and/or Excel reports of directory activity. The reports can include statistics, summaries, charts and graphs to display overall activity for each directory as well as all directories combined.
This report could be generated on a daily basis and coupled with the Emailer plugin to send a scheduled update. Reports could also be generated manually which would mean having to archive all event data so that is can be retrieved long after being cleared in the UI.12 votes
A plugin that writes Directory Monitor events to the Windows Event Log.
This could write to the application event log (errors are already written there) or to it's own custom event log for monitoring with administrative tools like SCOM.15 votes
Directory Monitor will only be able to detect changes in shares that are running a Windows-based operating system or use emulated Windows shares such as Samba (SMB). Because of this, no changes will appear when motioning shares that are exposed through various other protocols such as NFS.
To overcome this a polling mechanism could be put in place (the snapshot feature does this already), which will periodically take a snapshot of a share's contents and try determine the changes from the previous one.
This technique is somewhat unreliable depending on the latency of taking the snapshot and you would lose…3 votes
Add the possibility to manually start an action just in case the trigger did not work1 vote
Ability to change specific directory settings on multiple directories at once. A grid edit feature could also be useful.
check/uncheck monitor subdirectories for all directories1 vote
The ability to setup a directory that does not cause any user notification such as balloons, tray icon flashing or even the tray icon changes. Events created will be completely silent but still logged to the Text and Grid logs and any automation steps will also be run, there will just be no indication to the user that anything has happened.
This can be useful for ignoring events in directories you knowingly are making changes to and want to log the changes, but not be concerned with a notification. More important directories can notify you in some way so that…4 votes
