I'm trying to write a health check script that will verify certain file auditing is in place such as.... %systemroot% has audits set up for 'failures' on 'CreateFiles" for the 'everyone' user. I know how to set this up using: New-Object System.Security.AccessControl.FileSystemAuditRule("Everyone","CreateFiles”,"none","none",”Failure") But I'm unsure how to query a folder and get it's audit settings for a particular user (almost 'everyone' user in my case). Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated.
