File acess logs under winows 2003 server

Hi All

The windows 2003 server is our main file server. For a short period I need to log each file accessed by the users. I noticed some files are disappearing for unknown reasons. I have my back-ups but need  to know how/why it is heppenig.

Many Thanks

Use the local security policy or Group Policy (if it's a member of an AD Domain) to set security options\auditing to file access success/failure. Then select the files/folders you wish to audit, right click properties, security, advanced, auditing, then add the object you wish to audit access for.

Cheers
