To be able to do that, you should enable auditing on a file.To enable auditing, you have to enable auditing at the server level on the Windows security policy and then enable auditing on the particular object (in this case, a file) which you are interested.
Do the following to enable auditing at the server level:
- Press Windows Key + R and type "secpol.msc".
- In the left pane, expand Local Policy and click on Audit Policy.
- In the right pane, double-click Audit object access.
