File Monitoring and Access Auditing

PA File Sight is a file monitoring software that will help you determine who is reading and writing important files. It can tell you when a new file or folder is created, renamed or moved. And, with our file watcher, when a file or folder gets deleted, PA File Sight can tell you who deleted the file which computer they deleted the file from (IP address and computer name).
