Configure object-level auditing

To audit file and folder access, object-level auditing must be enabled. This can be achieved in three ways:

  • Using Windows shares
  • Using PowerShell cmdlets
  • Using Global Object Access Auditing

Using Windows shares

  • Right-click on the share folder that you want to audit, and select Properties.
  • Click on the Security tab > Advanced, and then click on the Auditing tab. For the Everyone group, add the following entries:

  •   Principal Type Access Applies To

    • Create files / Write data
    • Create folders / Append data
    • Write attributes

    This folder, subfolders, and files
    Folder permission and owner changes Everyone Success, Failure
