WebESC is an essential security tool to scan for any change in your list of local or web files. It is intended mostly for advanced computer users.
It is swift. In the FLS file, the list for scanning is created by WebESC initial scan, or by your application, if any, or manually by you. The FLS data reflects the current state of scanned files, so WebESC will provide discrepancies between the two when compared to one taken at another time. You can analyze your local or web files for any changes, e.g., by a virus or hacker or legally by some application. WebESC will not remove a virus, but it can detect a file change that many antivirus programs omit, so it would be best to run them both.
WebESC in local mode helps you to track the file changes on your computer. For example, a list of hard disk files, or your storage on CD/DVD (if burning was reliable or there was media damage), or USB memory. You can also compare two different folders using the relative paths, meaning you can check your backups.
WebESC in web mode can verify that web links exist and change in web files sizes without downloading them. You can compare your web pages stored locally on your disk to those on your website, i.e., you can verify that all the files are successfully uploaded or have been changed by any. If you have the web links to other websites, you can check the broken links and file version changes. For example, on a release date, WebESC could check RapidShare web links if broken.
