Hey everyone I have a problem, can you help me solve.

A folder was created under my profile on the domain controller:  c:\users\gsmith\Desktop

It is a folder on the desktop when I log in.

It was a folder I did NOT create.


I am trying to find out how it got there.  
The events logs [security] do not go back to that date.
Right click > on the folder and it gives the date/time created & permissions.

Is there any tools, or any logs on the DC, I can check to see who created this folder on that particular date & time?

Thanks
