FileAuditor visualizes file system scan results in accordance with specified rules
The program demonstrates:
- Folder tree with an indication of user rights to each directory or file
- Presence of critical documents on a PC, server, or network storage
- Operations on critical files (creation, movement, deletion, etc.)
- File marking (confidential agreement, personal data, financial statements)
