I have an accounting folder that I am wanting to monitor.

I have it shared out to a select few.

I need to know successful and failed attempts on this folder.

I am not running AD.

Oh, just in case: what that article doesn't tell you is that you'll find the results of the auditing in the security event log.

I've done that but it shows WAY too many entries in the Event Viewer.

I have filtered on Event ID 560 --- shows what I am looking for but seems to be logging every second or so.

I've had this running for 3 days now and I have 15000 entries.  With only 10 people accessing this one folder.

Is there a better way?

Not really. When the system is told to log, it logs, and then it's up to the application how often it accesses the folder or file in question. You can try to reduce what you're logging, and who you're logging (for example only deletion).
