By default, there is no way to determine who moved a file. You can
determine who deleted a file by using the Salvage utility.

If you enable auditing first, you can then determine who accessed/moved a
file. There are also third party applications that leverage the auditing
service to make lookups and reporting based on audit logs rather easy.

Re: file usage

It's horribly complex and a nightmare to administer? 🙂

Don't forget the nasty questions you're going to get from the auditers

Re: file usage

If you'd like to consider an alternative (and in my opinion, easier)
product, you can try our DSMETER. DSMETER loads NLMs which track your user
activity - login/logout, file activity (file writes, deletes, opens, reads,
salvages, purges), failed login attempts, create/delete of NDS objects,
changes to attributes, hidden objects, optional blocking of file activity
such as blocking mp3s, etc. A 30-day evaluation is available from:

The first half a dozen recommendations were OK by me but, this is getting
old. Fast!
