I was told that this funtionility has been turned on for some folders, is there a way for me to find which folders have it? without having to go thru all the folders?

Commented:
I am not aware of (and cannot find with a quick search) a tool to check this.  Have you looked in the group policy yet?  BTW here's another article for you: http://www.windowsecurity.com/articles/Windows-Active-Directory-Auditing.html

It was not set with a group policy.. So you are saying that I would have to go thru all the folders..

thank you for your assistance..

Commented:
there may be a command-line tool to enumerate this (among other things) but haven't found it yet.
