NT Server - File Last Touched?

Before trying to educate myself, I thought it would be a good idea to "Ask the Experts" whether it's even possible.

So what I'm looking for is, "Yes" or "No" and maybe a keyword (or two) to begin searching MSDN. Just a "hint" in which direction to begin looking ....

Does NT Server record who was the last person to "touch" a file? Or maybe who created it?

Any pointer would be appreciated.

No, NT keeps an date when it was last accessed only.
You can set audit for files though and then analyze the last access using the event viewer. Audit tools can be obtained at www.ntsec.com (for free) ... get those and play around, then ask me when you have a question

I am asked for a "Premier" User ID & Password when I open www.ntsec.com. Any other source?
