Audit logs

Please make sure that the auditing is enabled in the windows. I have copy pasted the section below for your convenience.

To setup additional items that will be audited, you will need to configure specific audit rules for each share or qtree:

  1.     In Computer Manager, go to the qtree or folder that you wish to audit.
  2.     Select the Security tab , then the Advanced tab, and select Auditing.
  3.     Specify the groups and events to be audited.
