    Ive just done a gpupdate /force... Auditign was already enabled for a couple of other things.. What services do i need to start / restart? Does it really require a reboot of the server?

    It would be helpful. And the mail service that the eventtrigger uses need to be activated.

    Ive got it sending mail from other events, I tested with some generic events that were happening all the time. So ive got the mailing part sorted..

    I just cant seem to get these audits to log in the event viewer

    Perhaps setting it to email you on all events every hour?

    setting what?

    The way ive done it is to right click on an Event and enable email of that particualar event..

    There are thousands of events I just want ntfs permissions changes email notifications

    If I can get these events to appear in the log, i can just right click on it and enable email notifications..

    If you're still playing with this I would use this Windows 2008 - Audit folder permissions change on folders (and/or http://www.windowsitpro.com/article/...es-on-a-folder) applied through a group policy for the machine hosting the folder in question. I'd then use Windows 2008/R2 scheduled tasks which can be set to trigger on a group policy event and use that to fire off the email and if you want the contents of the event: Getting event log contents by email on an event log trigger - John Howard - Senior Program Manager in the Hyper-V team at Microsoft - Site Home - TechNet Blogs

    Im struggling to understand step 4 of this, what is Auto Hidden Files?

    To enable folder permission auditing, you can follow the below steps:

    1. Click start and run "secpol.msc" without quotes.
    2. Open the Local Policies\Audit Policy
    3. Enable the Audit object access for "Success" and "Failure".
    4. Go to Auto Hidden files and folders, right click the folder and select properties.
    5. Go to Security Page and click Advanced.
    6. Click Auditing and Edit.
    7. Click add, type everyone in the Select User, Computer, or Group.
    8. Choose Apply onto: This folder, subfolders and files.
    9. Tick on the box “Change permissions”
    10. Click OK.
    Apart from that, I have done all those steps. However the only event logs I seem to be getting are 5145 but none of the expected Task Category of File System

    The auditing stuff is in two parts, once you have switched it on in GPO for that system then you must go to the folder itsel an in its properties under the Security > Advanced > Auditing tab you want to add groups to the folder which are audited and what they are audited for.

    Once both of these things are setup it should work.

    Here is a better guide but it appears you have already done what is says:
    Auditing Windows Server 2008 File and Folder Access - Techotopia

    Have you tried auditing a user account directly instead of the everyone group and setting the policy to audit everything.

    it seems to be working in the sense that im getting event ID 4696 and 4698 when I view the permissions of the folders etc, but there are no 590 or any specific events actually logging the changing of the permissions.

    have you tried changing the perms from a different account, maybe its not triggering the change as you are the owner of the folder? Not sure, never really played with it indepth.

    I'd just switch on all the auditing options on the folder and work backwards from their if that made it work.
