  • Find out which files have ben accessed.

    Hi Guys,

    I have been asked by one of the directors to run a list off of what files a certain member of staff has been looking at.

    There is presently no software on there at the moment to do this.

    I have used software in the past that logs this information, but as there is no software on there at the moment, is there anything anybody can think of that can look at the historical access of documents?

    Thanks in advance

    Nothing to do it historically (since Microsoft Office Crystal Ball 2011 is still in early beta )

    If is is in an active directory domain, you can enable auditing object access through GPOs (you also have to enable auditing of particular files / folders)

    If it is not a domain you can enable auditing through local policies

    What client OS are you using?

      Client OS in this instance is Windows XP SP3.

        OK, moving to XP forums for better response
