    Question Can I find out who deleted files from a shared folder?

    Hi Guys,

    As above... I need to identify a student who has deleted some files from a shared folder, is there a way I can identify who last made changes to the folder?

    Many thanks.

    It is unlikely unless you have tracking tools in place or have logging switched on. Do you have volume shadow copy on this drive? It has saved my bacon a few times on shared drives.

    Ah, that's what I was afraid of. Yeah I have a copy, it's all safe but just really would like to find the culprit! I can only identify the time/date of when it was deleted, just not the user.

    You can't do it retrospectively but you can turn on folder auditing for the future.

    See here for Server 2008 example.
