e.g a user prints a doc and the same doc is copied or registered elseware with out he user knowing?

a lot of steps are taken to prevent data theft, but the system does allow print outs, and we have som esuspect users but all we see in event viewer is document title, would be nive to know what it actually is there printing.

    There is no way of doing this natively in Windows 2003/XP and I don't know of any utility either (it would use a lot of disk space if it had to store an copy of everything printed)
