Hi All,

I need to find out who is copy a file to the network (actually they are replacing an existing file).

So I enabled auditing for the server using this guide and enable object access on the folder.


This works for the folder.  But it's logging all folders.  How do I restrict it to just the folder I want to monitor?

Disable auditing on the (parent) folder you're currently monitoring, or you can't change the auditing to the sub-folder since it will inherit the settings of the parent.

You should only audit the folder/files you're interested in.
