    Configuring object level auditing - using Windows shares

    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
      File/folder changes Everyone Success, Failure
      • Create files / Write data
      • Create folders / Append data
      • Write attributes
      • Write extended attributes
      • Delete subfolders and files
      • Delete
      This folder, subfolders, and files
      Folder permission and owner changes Everyone Success, Failure
      • Take ownership
      • Change permissions
      This folder and subfolders
