Audit Intranet User's File Uploads

By UNFVincent ·
I'm a jr. admin, we have a number of network shares at my work. It's a constant struggle to keep users from abusing our storage space and uploading mass amounts of data. Is there some sort of auditing system in Windows Server 2008 x64 edition where I can see whos uploading what, how large the files are, what date this occured, etc? For example if INTRANET\bobdole uploads 5 GB worth of data to our N: drive, I want to know about this or be able to track this.

Try monitor-type quotas

by DomBenson In reply to Audit Intranet User's Fil ...

You could enable disk quotas, with a soft limit (that doesn't stop users from adding files, but does allow you to track it). That won't give you all the granularity you mention, but it could give you a heads-up when someone's quota changes and by how much. There's an article on configuring it under Server 2003R2 here:
