I have set my object audit on, but can not see when files change.  I am looking in Event Viewer, is that the right place?

I have set my Audit Objects on and have changed some files on the server, but still do not see these changes in the Event Viewer log.  I can see users logging in and out, bit not file changes.  Am I looking in the right place?  I even added an audit in the folder I am most interested in and still see nothing.

My concern is we have had entire folders disappear more than once and would like to see who may be doing this.

Thank you in advance for your help.

I have done everything it said to do on the second link, however, the first link mentions Microsoft Management Console, and I can not find that anywwhere.  I have looked under Control Panel and Admin Tools.

Management Console is started with command 'mmc' through start|run. As you said you have enabled object access auditing policy, that step has already been done.

To audit file access, you nead to configure file auditing through security-tab (files or folder properties) -> advanced -> Audit. Add the users/groups you want to audit for a given action.

bunky,
    Is this server/PC a member of a domain? If yes, related GPO should be modified in domain controller.

 I cant read the "How can I launch Microsoft Management Console" line in your initial question, which suits the accepted answer?
