Method to monitor folders on a shared drive

We have been experiencing an issue where user folders (assigned as home folder) have been disappearing from a shared folder. It is random, a user will call to say they cannot access their H drive and when checking find the folder is gone and has to be restored from backup. We think it may be linked to users logging into their account through a terminal server service. Not sure how to pin this down, would like to get some notification if a folder goes missing. Hope this makes sense.

The NetCrunch 8 file monitor has a folder sensor, and it can monitor whether a folder exists, or for content within the folder. You can have it set to alert you via email or SMS.
