Monitoring File Changes on Windows with Python (it's not easy like you may think)

Note: Budget for this project is 50 USD, when the job is completed entirely.

Need to create a python program that will:

1) Monitor a given folder and its subfolders (i.e c:\test or could also be c:\ and all subfolders)

2) It should report all files changed (created, modified, or deleted) . It should report the entire file path (i.e c:\test\[login to view URL]) and also the process name and process id of the process responsible for making this change.

Example: Let's say you are monitoring the folder c:\test, open cmd and type dir * > c:\test\[login to view URL]

In this case, [login to view URL] is the process that is creating a new file, so it should report the process name (c:\windows\system32\[login to view URL]), process id (PID number), and if possible also the user account which made this change.

Note: The first part I know is easy (just monitoring folders for changes), however, the second one is the most important (gathering information about the process that made the change) seems to be really difficult. Please make sure you are able to complete this task entirely before sending your proposal.

Note2: If you cannot do it in python but you have another way of doing that, please share with me what you would do and I may award this project to you anyway.

Deliverable is a working source code with instructions.

Hi, I have gone through your description. Two things first your budget of 50 wouldn't attract any serious developer. Second the idea of obtaining process ID isn't likely possible. Process id's aren't constant and get Flere

There's a way to manage list of changed files without python or php. CLI tools that will give you a list of updated files. But what time slice you may wish, for updates? Every 5 minutes or 10 or more? This will add to Flere

Hi, I'm James. You are absolutely right in that catching which program created a file is the hard part. Finding the PID is likely to be unhelpful as they change regularly, but I think that it will be possible to use th Flere
