Monitoring and logging file changes by processes

Hi,

I am on Windows Server 2003, and need some help with linking file changes to processes.

Is there a tool out there that logs which process(es) modified which files within a given folder?

Thanks.

Sysinternals "FileMon", should do what you want.

Whist you're there, grab yourself a copy of Process Explorer, way better than Task manager for telling you what's going on (e.g. it tells you WHICH svchost process is running WHICH services! Damn useful!) and TCPView.
