Altering a protected file on a domain.

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by DoubleEntendre, Aug 11, 2006.

  1. We have a few servers at work, one has a multitude of folders and files that
    over 50 people contribute to. One file that has all the employees phone
    numbers (home & cell) was altered really bad, almost like an inexperienced
    person "playing" with it (as if not knowing they were causing harm to it).
    The odd thing is that it was protected by a mild/complicated password that
    only 1 or 2 people have!!!!!!

    Everyone has denied opening the file & altering it (and I believe them), but
    someone had to do it!

    Is there any audit trail to look at? We are running mostly XP at the
    terminals with a couple of 98's, I don't know what the servers have, I think
    also XP.

    Thanks,

    DE

    If it is a Microsoft office document, if you right click and properties of
    file, it should list under summary either the name or computer name
    of the last person who last edited it?
