Missing user files 2003 server

Running 2003 server R2 and DFS. User files are  missing at an alarming rate. I am pretty sure they are being moved to unknown locations by the user but I am not sure in all instances. Sometimes I can find them and sometimes I cannot. Any ideas on how to log or prevent this from happening? Any ideas on what might be happening besides the user moving them?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The only way I know how to do this is to turn on Auditing.  However, be specific in regard to users and files or folder otherwise you will overwhelm the logs.  It also slows the server and you have to monitor the logs to keep them under control.
