Shared folder History!!!!

Hi experts,
I've a folder sharen on my network, and in some cases the folders inside it changed by other users on the network,
Can I find any software that can record all the shared folders history in order to know who access the files on the shared folders and change it????
Note, I don't need "ShareWatch" it's simple prog. I need one that record log or history
Thanks in advance

Which OS do you have on the server hosting the share.
And if it's MS, are you using Active Directory?

You will need to enable auditing on the XP hosting the share.
This will put the info you need in the event log.
Click start/run and type secpol.msc
Choose local policies then audit policy. On the right choose what you want to audit and select 'succesfull'.
By pressing F1 and clicking on the green link, you will get a good explanation of what each one means.

You can export the eventlog. Why do you absolutely need a seperate software?

I think I'm getting it. With 'the one' you are referring to a person, not a machine?
Maybe you can set it up for him.
And then use an easy tool to read the XP event log: http://www.event-log-xp.com/
Or use tailxp, this can continuously monitor the event log: http://infiero.com/tailxp/index.html
Otherwise you are out of luck. Or maybe someone else knows an easier way?
