Change Auditor for Windows File Servers 7.1.1 - User Guide

Change Auditor for Windows Files Servers Overview


Change Auditor for Windows File Server tracks, audits, and alerts on file and folder changes in real time, translating events into simple terms and eliminating the time and complexity required by system provided auditing. The auditing scope can be set on an individual file or folder or an entire file system recursive or non-recursive. You can include or exclude certain files or folders from the audit scope to ensure a faster and more efficient audit process.

In addition to File System auditing, you can protect and lock down critical file system paths from unauthorized or accidental modifications or deletions.

Deployment requirements

For a successful deployment, ensure that your environment meets the minimum system requirements. For information on system requirements, see the Change Auditor Release Notes. For details on installing Change Auditor, see the Change Auditor Installation Guide.
