I'm trying to find software to do file change reporting.  The owner of our company would like daily reports of who worked on what files, new creations, deletions, etc. Any ideas?

Hi,

There are many ways to accomplish it. One way is to Install a Document Management System and put all files on it. This way whenever someone changes the file you will get to know. It maintains its Audit record. Knowledgetree is a nice DMS;

The other option is to simply have a file monitor. Below are a few examples;

We have tried SharePoint as a DMS before, the problem was that in order to work with files they basically have to be downloaded from the server then uploaded back.  Currently we have a well organized file structure on a windows 2003 server.  Ideally there is a lightweight software program to monitor file changes and generate reports.
