we need to know if user move directory add file to a directory or change file in a directory
and we have to keep record of those move for weeks.

And you don't want to use the built in auditing features and just pipe the Event logs to an external site....

I have used two products in the past for this, and was pleased with each:

http://www.quest.com/changeauditor-for-windows-file-servers/

They will both get you what you are seeking.

Yes.... You can use some sort of Event Log parser to collect and save the Windows Event logs into a DB.  For example, look at splunk:

I have also used that, and it is very "usable" software.
