could anyone help me in finding the access logs to a shared folder in Windows 7.

I would like to get information like the user name, time, IP, etc.

I have already looked into the Event Viewer to find nothing. Any help is much appreciated.

You need to set up the audit log for that go to group policy editor and open audit object access and check both options than you need to open the properties of the shared folder and configure the audit after that you can view the logs on event viewer
