Tracking File and Folder Modifications

I am trying to track file and folder modifications, moves and deletions within Windows 2000 server on servers within a domain. Is there anyway that I can do this through the tools on Windows 2000 server or is there are free third party tool that would perform the same task?

You need to enable auditing either through the local security policy of the server or through group policy.  Once you enable auditing for the desired events they will show up in the security event log of the server.

If you want to audit across multiple servers then you either need to check each log or get a third party package.  Search for "windows event management" and you'll get a zillion hits.
