    Hello Everyone,

    I was wondering if there is a way to track which users are accessing files on the network.

    For example, Bob has access to the sales folder, he opens a document called sales.txt.

    Is there a place where this info is logged? Can I see when he accessed the file?

    I am workin in a windows 2000 domain.

    Thanks

    I did find an auditing feature under the folder properties.

    You right click the folder that you want to monitor and select properties, security, advanced, auditing, then add the user that you wish to monitor.

    The results are listed in event viewer, under the security section.

    I guess this does accomplish what I am asking, but it seems very tedious.

    I'm still up for better suggestions.

    Thanks
