Hi,

   I have a client who has as she says a "ghost moving files from folders to other folders" within her organization.  She feels that nobody could possibly be moving them because they are a small office and everyone is as confused as she is.   Be that as it may, I have never seen a ghost in a server so I'm sure that someone is moving them around, possibly by accident.  Anyway, I want to enable secury settings so I go to secpol.msc and go to local machine.  I want to audit the access to particular folders so I try to audit object access (I think this is the right thing to enable) and when I go to properties, where I want to "Audit these attempts: ", the check boxes for success and failure are both grayed out.  Is there a process I need to make sure is started before I can do this?  Please let me know....

Those are grayed out probably you have Domain Group Policy enable.

Anyway, to enable auditing on file server for specific volume, folder, or file, you need to logon to the file server and select the interested data to audit.
For example, if you want to audit a folder, right-click on the folder-->properties-->Security-->Advanced-->Auditing--Add. Select the group or users that you want to audit. Once you locate the user or group, you will see all the Accesses for are looking for.
