Audit floppy access?

By pbtoms ·
I've been asked to log what a particular user might be copying to a floppy disk. Is there a simple way to do this? We have a Win2K server, she has an XP workstation. I know how to set up auditing on the server, but then I have to wade through everything she opens, and she has to use a lot of files in the course of a day. We just want to know if she's copying any of them to a floppy disk to take with her when she 'defects'. Is there a way to audit what she does with her floppy drive? It can be local, doesn't have to be done over the network. Any ideas?

Audit floppy access?

If you are worried that a user might be copying files to a floppy would it not be more prudent to disable the floppy in device manager rather than wait till the person HAS the files that you dont want them to have or are you trying to catch her RED HANDED?

Trying to ensure that she is not taking files she's not supposed to take. She does have legitimate reasons to need to use the floppy drive, so disabling is not an option. That's why we wanted to monitor what was going to floppy.

Ive looked every where for a solution to this from group policies in W2k to local security settings in xp, the only thing that i can suggest is to look at auditing privalige use, that might tell you what you want to know

sorry i couldnt be more helpful
