    ProcMon - how to monitor a specific file?


    Is there a way to have ProcMon monitor what applications are accessing a specific file.

    I am aware of setting "Path"=. [pathname]
    However, I don't know how to have ProcMon monitor a specific file within that folder,
    i.e. what applications are actively accessing that file.

    Thanks.

    Just include the file name in the path:
    ProcMon - how to monitor a specific file?-procmon.png
    resulting in:
    ProcMon - how to monitor a specific file?-procmon2.png
    I know, its a lot of events (>192,000 in 6 sec) - my PC is often like that, don't know why.

    Thanks a lot!

    Frankly I wasn't sure about that, gave it a try alright, but as nothing appeared, even after a while, I guessed I was wrong and assumed that path indeed meant just the 'path' (only), i.e. it isn't supposed to include a file.

    Anyway, thanks again!
