Server

When licensed, Change Auditor for Windows File Servers provides enables administrators to secure business-critical files and folders on the file server against potentially dangerous changes.

See the File System protection task description for more information.

File System protection

To use File System protection, you must first complete the following steps to define the files and folders to protect:

The following sections go over the File System Protection page and how to create a File System Protection template.

The File System Protection page opens when File System is selected from the Protection task list in the navigation pane of the Administration Tasks page, and contains an expandable view of all the File System Protection templates that have been previously defined. From this page, you can open the File System Protection wizard to specify a file or folder to protect from unauthorized access. You can also edit existing templates, disable and enable templates, and remove templates that are no longer being used.

NOTE: If you are planning to use multiple File System Protection templates, see the Quest Change Auditor Technical Insight Guide for more information about how multiple protection templates are evaluated.
