    It's a 2 steps procedure.
    First, you enable auditing in the local or group policies.
    Then you select which files/folders/printing to audit.
    The process is very resource intensive so be carefull.

    Be careful if you enable auditing for all users on the whole of drive C for all file/folder events you will end up with a huge log file - its nor resource intensive in terms of the processing powers etc required - its just the size of the log file that is an issue.
