Tools to track/audit 1 Windows user access on server

Anyone know of an effective, cost effective solution to monitor a single users file manipulations on a server.

User is remoting into office, RDPing to a desktop manipulating files on server from machine in office, Pres of Co wants a history of where she goes/what she does on Win2k8 Server.
Cost is a factor, and really dont want to add overhead to server. Any solutions that run on a desktop?
Thoughts/ideas?

Thanks!!

you want to know everything but want no impact or low impact on the server. This is cross purposes, since to get the information you have to audit everything auditing is not granular enough to limit itself to a single user. So you are going to get large audit logs that you have to filter onto the user in question. this will put a strain on the disk subsystem and have possible hard drive space implications .. If you don't trust the user then restrict their access severely by putting them into their own OU and ntfs/share permissions  and then you will be limiting the total amount of damage that the user is capable of.thjis will also limit the area that you need to audit
