Tracking copy / deletion


We've got to track an impending departure from a company - I need to monitor all files that are copied / deleted or anything on the server that this user does anything with.
The server is SBS 2008, their workstation is Win 7.
I'm ok with using 3rd party software... just need to provide management a full report each week.

NTFS Auditing which is built into Windows does a pretty good job of this, but I find it to be a bit cumbersome to extract the important information you may need.

Luckily there are some good 3rd-party tools that work with Auditing to make it much easier to use.  One that I've tried is FileAudit.  The trial version allows you to audit 2 machines.  If you need to do more you have to buy the license.

Another that I've seen, but haven't tried is File-Sight.  It looks a bit more comprehensive, and has a fully functional 30-day trial.
