Auditing Policy

Good Day,

I have turned on Auditing for the everyone group on a specific file on a server. The right is list folder/read data and failed is checked. I then go to events viewer, security and i see failures from users who have access to the specific folder. Here is the data that  I get. I go to the user in question and i ask whether she got any errors connecting to the folder. The answer is no. I would like to monitor just the failures on a specific do i do this. And what does the below Security event viewer mean?

This may explain why you are getting these failure audits:

To audit only failures, when you selected the everyone group, select only Failure instead of Success for that specific file.
