I want to make log file for things being copied from workstation (Win XP & 7) to USB Storage device.
Whatever things being copied to usb device should be logged in a file.
i.e., If user copied a file named abc.txt from local dirve,( path: "c:\abc.txt"), this file name along with path must be recorded.
Is it possible? If yes, how to acheive it.
Note: Workstations are connected in domain architecture, working with Win server 2008 Std. Edition R1.
Hi arun_cdm .
Yes )) monitoring the files is the best thing to control them .
I am using that soft to "control" them : USB Detect .
It will help protect your files on your computer and network.
It does this by monitoring all USB drive activity.
When someone plugs any type of USB drive into the computer, the software recognizes this and will add the activity to a log.
It saves the date/time and the username logged into the computer.
When a user copies files to the USB drive, all file activity will be logged also.
Very nice soft ,many option and email notifications etc ,,, . You can try it by installing the demo version .
Good luck ,.
