Hello Adnan,

From another posting:

Enabling file auditing is a 2-step process.

[1] Configure "audit object access" in AD Group Policy or on the server's
local GPO. This setting is located under Computer Configuration-->Windows
Settings-->Security Settings-->Local Policies-->Audit Policies. Enable success/failure
auditing for "Audit object access."

[2] Configure an audit entry on the specific folder(s) that you wish to audit.
Right-click on the folder-->Properties-->Advanced. From the Auditing tab,
click Add, then enter the users/groups whom you wish to audit and what actions
you wish to audit - auditing Full Control will create an audit entry every
time anyone opens/changes/closes/deletes a file, or you can just audit for
Delete operations.

After you've done both of these steps, any file deletions will show up in
the Security log of the file server that hosts those files.


Best regards
