Hello experts,

We have a Windows 2003 file server. Somebody has changed the security privileges of a folder. I want to know who exactly did that. We are three administrators working there.

Any help?

Nothing will help you in this instance.

Enable this next time: Audit object access -> Success/Failure

LGPO or GPO -> Computer configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policies -> Audit Policy
