Tracking deleted files on a Windows 2000 Server
Posted on 2006-10-19
We are using a Windows 2000 SP4 server as our main file server. Client machines are using Windows XP SP2.
Very occasionally, we get users complaining that the odd folder on the file server has been deleted...we normally carry out a search for it and it turns out the folder
has been accidentally moved.
However, a user reported a bunch of folders and subfolders missing yesterday. We carried out a search to no avail, so we had to restore from backup.
Is there any way we can track/audit what happened to these files? I suppose we may be too late in this case, but perhaps in the future?
