Track File Movement

By hartbladed ·
Hi to all,

just want to ask if there is a tool that can track a file/folder that was moved or copied by the users who have accessed on it? Hope you can send me some links to it. Many thanks in advance.

Off the top of my head...

Set up Auditing.

Right click the file/folder you want to track
Choose Properties, click the Security tab
Click Advanced and then click the Auditing tab

Add the names or groups and click ok.

Select which events you want to track, such as a failed delete or successful copy/move and click Ok

You can track the logs in the Event Viewer.

Open Manage Computer from a MMC console,
Right click the logs icon and choose Properties.

You can set how big the logs files are and how they are overwritten, by either time or size.

Hope this helps!
