Determine who created a file on Windows 2000 server
Posted on 2004-10-04
We have a standard Windows 2000 network here at this office. We have a shared folder with all of the lawyers names in it, and under that, file numbers, precedents, etc.
We have this kind of thing:
Very standard stuff as far as folder setup goes.
Now, we have _someone_ in the office, downloading videos off the 'net and burying them deep inside one of these folders.
These babies are 300-400 MB, and are costing me in terms of available HD and filling up my backup.
We are pretty sure we know who is doing it, but would like to know for sure before we confront them.
When I do a right-click/Properties, all I get is the properties of the AVI file itself (i.e. no creator info).
Is there a feature of W2K Server that I can turn on to track who creates what?
Is there any third-party program that does the same thing?
Any other unique ideas?
After this, I am going to implement fixes (block ports on the firewall, etc.) but that will be after this.
