Your Windows event log / event viewer security logs might show who's logging on to your shares.

A long time ago, I came across the same solution, trying to monitor a network share and all the RW activity. This was 2 years ago, and there was no freeware that did this (and it's not built into windows). I'll try to find the name of the program I found that did the monitoring, however I believe it was $30.

well can't you use a packet sniffer?

I'm sure a sniffer should do the work as it use to work when I was listing files from my neighbours computer as we both had it set up


And what about this, it shows what user is accessing what
