asked on

windows file server change editor software

Hello experts,

Here is what we are trying to find:
There is a windows file server. We would like a software that can log and report, which user deleted or edited a file.

User count: 20 (twenty)
Server count: 1

For instance we have found change-auditor for windows file servers from quest.com however the minimum licence requirement is 300 and we only have 20 users.

What would be your recommendations on this kind of a software need?

Thank you in advance.
Kindest Regards

hi Lucane,

I believe that you can get the demo and try out the software from quest.com for you to assess if their software is okay for you.

however the minimum licence requirement is 300 and we only have 20 users
If you are asking that their fees/licence requirement is not suitable for you/company then I would suggest to try another software that is an open source.

One example that I've found is from sourceforge.net, here is the link:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/snare/

It's also multi-platform software.
