What I really need is some program to monitor a folder for file deletions. I have found two so far: SystemProtect and ShareAlarmPro. The first one only detects local file deletions. The latter detects network share deletions but always specifies the deleter as the Guest account of the local pc which is useless for my purposes since I need the username and computer name from which the deletion was performed.
Actually, I am being forced to do all this searching due to Microsoft's dumb decision to require the delete permission for Excel file saves. No other software has a problem with saving files to a network share with no delete permission. But with Excel, it throws up a sharing violation error. I suppose there is no way to tell Excel to stop doing that, is there?
