Reports file change activity on your hard drive.

Overview

Sonar is a security tool that provides real-time reporting of file changes on your hard drive. It is a useful diagnostic tool and an invaluable aid for anyone who is serious about computer security.

Sonar reports file system activity. It reports all changes. It does not report reading activity. Sonar cannot prevent disk activity. It only can report it. However, you can use the information reported by Sonar to delete files you don't want on your hard drive.

Features:

  • Monitor untrusted software with Sonar to ensure it is not installing spyware or other unauthorized files without your knowledge. Or use Yank with Sonar technology to create simple uninstaller files.
  • Use Sonar to troubleshoot Spotlight-related slowdowns on your computer.
  • Developers can use Sonar to monitor how frequently their software writes to the hard drive. Use this information to optimize your program's hard drive usage.

What's new in Sonar

Version 2.0:
  • Now compatible with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). It is expected to remain compatible with the soon-to-be-released Snow Leopard, Apple's new OS scheduled to be released later this year.

I gave "Sonar" a spin and have to say that the excellent and free "fSeventer" offers all the functionality and info that most anyone would want or need. I'm staying with FSeventer. I used Sonar's uninstaller to delete Sonar and then then used the outstanding and free "EasyFind" to look for any files/folders that Sonar's own uninstaller might have missed. EasyFind found 14 of them. I then typed in Matterform, and EasyFind came up with 8 more. Interestingly, Matterform sells an uninstaller ("Yank"); its last iteration was way back in March '07 and which has gotten some less than stellar reviews from MacUpdate reviewers. This does not inspire confidence.
