I am looking for logging software for file-sharing which can be used to find out who modified which files and also keeps a record. I know this can be somewhat done with Auditing a specific folder however it is not very efficient.

Well, I'm still looking for a better solution. I'm guessing it is possible that there is no better logging software.
