First, i "turn on" auditing in general on my file server, using either the local security policy and on the  domain policy for the servers in question.
Then i enabled auditing for the users or groups in question on the folders that are of interest. After logging on and deleting a folder which i have access to, i cann't see anything in the security event logs. need help

    How long did you wait with deleting the folder after you set up the policy?? It can take up to 90 minutes before policies are refreshed. You can force it using these commands..

    secedit /refreshpolicy on Windows 2000
    gpupdate /force on XP and Server 2003
