Hi,
due to regulations we have to monitor any access to the files stored
on our file server. At the first glance i thought no problem - use
windows tools and every thing is ok. But the problem is now that there
are too much log messages. So the server performance is going down in
case of activated windows logging.

Are there possiblities in windows (or some external tools) to set up a
highly performable file access audit?

At least we need the following information:
- Username
- File + Path
- Timestamp

best regards,
robin
