About Data Collector Settings

The Data Collector Settings feature provides option to configure the Share/Folder/File Name and Event ID for the application to collect the change data. Based on the setting, the application will report any change made to the Shares/Folders/Files in the servers/workstations. Optionally, you can configure email alert to get the instant notification for change data through email. This feature is powered by a multitasking listener service called NTFS Listener Service.


  • NTFS Listener Service runs in the background even after the Vyapin NTFS Security Management Suite application is closed.

  • Multiple hosts can be subscribed to track their multiple Share/Folder/File names for changes.

  • E-mail alert notification can be limited to a threshold limit. i.e. (Say, send an email when the event ID 'x' occurs for 'y' times)

  • Provision to add, edit, delete and view properties of a specific event ID information configured for the specific host.

  • Attempts to reconnect every one minute if the host is not reachable.
