In Windows, how can I check if a specific folder has been accessed, or if files deleted from that folder, or files added etc? Is there a log for me to check this and where do I check this?

If activation is needed in order to monitor the above request, how do I activate this in Windows?

You need to enable audiiting of Object Access via a local or group policy and then specify the precise details at the file/folder level - its then recorded in the security log, see http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-10878_11-5034308.html
