Hermetic File Monitor is for detecting changes to files in a folder, and for detecting additions or deletions of files in a folder. Multiple folders can be set up to be monitored. Optionally files in all subfolders of a folder can also be monitored. Optionally all files can be monitored or just files with a certain file extension such as 'xls'. Folders can be checked automatically at regular intervals. Results can be written to report files. Hermetic File Monitor works by recording digital signatures of files (using the MD5 message digest algorithm). If the digital signature of a certain file is the same at two successive recordings then the file has not changed. If the digital signature changes then that shows that the contents of the file have changed.

Hermetic Systems is the business name of Peter Meyer, firstname.lastname@example.org, the developer of this software, and the owner and maintainer of the Hermetic Systems website at hermetic.ch.
The Hermetic File Monitor software ("the Software") consists of the executable file and the other files installed by the installation program hfm_setup.exe obtainable from the Hermetic Systems website.
The Software is protected by copyright, which is owned by Hermetic Systems. The Software may be downloaded from the Hermetic Systems website or another authorized download site solely for the purpose of its evaluation with regard to the purchase of a user license. Neither the installation program nor any work derived from it may be distributed further by any means (including via CD or the web) without the permission of the copyright holder.
All intellectual property rights related to the Software are owned by Hermetic Systems. You may not rent or lease the Software. You may not modify, translate, reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the Software or any part thereof or otherwise attempt to derive source code or create derivative works therefrom. You may not remove, alter or destroy any proprietary, trademark or copyright markings or notices contained within the Software. You may not sell or offer for sale any derivative work. Any rights not explicitly granted by Hermetic Systems are reserved.
In return for a license fee paid to Hermetic Systems or to one of its authorized representatives or resellers you are granted a license to use the Software in its fully-functional form and you are provided with activation keys for each installation of the Software as follows:
(A) If you are a natural person then you receive a single-user license and this entitles you to install, activate and use the Software on a reasonable number of personal computers (e.g., a laptop and a desktop) in your private household or office.
(B) If you are an entity other than a natural person (e.g., a corporation) then you are required to purchase a single-user license for each PC on which the software will be made available for use.
The function of an activation key is to remove any temporal or functional limitations on a particular installation of the Software. A separate activation key is required for each installation (in other words, an activation key works only on a particular computer).
In the event that a later version of the software is released, you may update an installation at no charge by downloading and installing the new version.
If you change your computer (or make a major hardware modification) you may need to obtain a new activation key. This can be obtained in the same way as before (and at no charge), provided that, in the opinion of Hermetic Systems, the number and frequency of such new activation keys is not unreasonably excessive.

You assume responsibility for selecting the Software and using it for your intended purposes. In no event shall Hermetic Systems, its resellers or distributors of the Software be liable for any any damages whatsoever arising out of use or inability to use the Software, even if advised of the possibiity of such damages.
