Excellent program, does exactly what it says. However, watching the changes does take quite a while to analyze, particularly because of my Applications folder (analyzing 72,000 files). It would be nice to be able to manually select what folders you would like watched.

Other than that, it's extremely easy to use, and the interface reflects that (though the caption text probably shouldn't be red, and the window doesn't need to be resizable). It's a program I've been needing for a while. And thus far, I have not seen it crash, though I did force-quit it when I accidentally clicked the "Watch changes" button and couldn't stop the analyzing.
