My auditing isn't working

I have a folder on a Windows 2003 file server that has some objectionable content. The owner attribute isn't enough to prove who it belongs to, so we have set auditing on the folder, left it open to the users we suspect and the admin group and then turned auditing on.

I did this but going to the advanced security, clicking on the Auditing tab and adding "everyone" with every option ticked.

Now, if I browse the files in the directory or open them up, I don't get anything in the security log.

The server is a DC - I have a thought in the back of my head that something needs to be done with GP, but I can't find any reference to it in my searches.

Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong?

Object Access is what you need to audit...  This PPT shows the GPO setting for the DC.
