Tracking and reporting usage is out of the league of GP. I know that NetPro has a new tool that claims to be able to do this. I am loathe to recommend Scriptlogic's stuff because they are relatively rinky dink, but I think they have a pretty good security reporting tool, as long as you don't have a lot of servers to report against.

Auditors are requesting that we track file and directory permissions and report who has access to what. Is that possible through Group Policies or does anyone know of a Microsoft or third party program that can accomplish this for us??
