  1. No data for monitored folder

    Monitoring \\fileserver\i$ and events are being listed in Real Time view.

    Added \\fileserver\f$ and accepted "Let FileAudit automatically..." but no events show up in File access viewer. Hit refresh and get warning "The NTFS audit needs to be configured". Click Next, Next, Finish and get message "Configuration of the NTFS audit started". Events aren't appearing so I click refresh again and go through this cycle a few times.

    Went back into Audit Configuration and \\fileserver\f$ shows "Not configured" under NTFS audit. I click "Remove" but it doesn't get removed unless I back out and try again several times. Also, it…

        • [BETA] File Access Viewer -- offline history

          I just downloaded the RC which seems to have a couple of nice tweaks. Thanks for paying attention to the beta users and incorporating of their suggestions.

          Here's one of my final ideas/issues.
          We need to monitor a drive that is not always on-line (we keep it locked with Bitlocker when not in use). The scheduled reports seem to work fine if the drive is offline, but if we try to search the history through the File Access Viewer, while the drive is offline, it just prompts us to enable monitoring on the drive.

          Certainly not critical (for now, we…

            • [BETA] Possibly shrink or scale main interface

              Running at 1024x768 (for a server or virtualized system not unheard of) the main interface chops off half of the Utils section.
              I understand the recent push to larger tiled interfaces and it , but having it scale to fit on the screen for lower resolutions would be nice.

                • [Beta] Dynamic Ranges On Scheduled Reports

                  Scheduled Reports>Time>From
                  Seems to only support beginning of time or a hard coded date.
                  Would be nice to have an option for X days/weeks ago to avoid having to manually update the date or resend the entire history every time.
                  Or, if there's some way to already do this, it could be a bit more clear.

                    • [BETA] Email Text Cut Off in License Settings Screen

                      Under Settings > License, the text at the right side of the screen is cut off. When the software is maximized, more of the text shows but it still not complete.

                      This is on a 15 inch monitor at 1024 by 768 resolution.

                      Hope this helps!

                          • [BETA] Unable to Navigate Through Main Menu After Entering/Exiting 'Event Cleaner'

                            After starting the FileAudit program, if you enter the 'Event Cleaner' menu, and then go back to the main screen, you are unable to scroll through the menus with a mouse scrollwheel. If you click around in other menus and go back to the main screen, eventually you can start scrolling again. If you use the scrollbar at the bottom of the screen, it will let you move around the menu, but when you try to use the scrollwheel on the mouse again it won't work. I've been able to reproduce this.

                            To reproduce the issue:
                            1. Start FileAudit
                            2.…

                            • [BETA] FileAudit Isn't Maximized at Startup, Scrollbar Hidden

                              When FileAudit starts, it is sized to take up the entire screen, but it is not maximized. As a result, the scrollbar that is normally at the bottom of the page is hidden, as the taskbar is overtop of it. When you maximize the program, the scrollbar appears correctly, but you'd have to do this at every startup of the program. Our fileserver's mouse does not have a scrollwheel on it, so the only way to scroll through the screen is with the scrollbar. If it is possible to start the application in a Maximized state, or to have the…

                              • [BETA] FileAudit Path Wizard - Typo on Scheduling Menu

                                In the FileAudit path wizard, on the screen that says 'Schedule FileAudit for this server' there is a typo. The 2nd option says the following

                                "I will do this later and I'm aware I may loose events."

                                It should read

                                "I will do this later and I'm aware I may lose events."

                                Hope this helps!

                                • [BETA] Urgent: an issue has been detected once the evaluation period has expired.

                                  A problem has been detected in FileAudit 4 beta2:
                                  Once the evaluation period has expired, the FileAudit service can grow up to 100% of CPU time and many entries are generated into the FileAudit log file.
                                  These entries may increase the size of the FileAudit log file which can consume all the free space available on the volume where FileAudit is installed.

                                  We advise you to update your current beta version of FileAudit 4 to avoid any issue or uninstall the product if you no longer intend to use it.
                                  You should also delete this following file: C:\ProgramData\ISDecisions\FileAudit\ServiceLog.txt
