    HI I have a company telling me that they can not tell if files stored on a windows server were opened, copied, or just search for as part of a File Explorer Search. from the log files they have. They state that “an event in the log file has the meaning Windows events actioned by the user have been detected and logged. Windows events logged could be a File Explorer search, a copy, viewing file metadata such as the Properties tab or opening a file and they can not differentiate between them.” Is this correct? I am assuming that it is possible to tell if a file has been opened or just searched for.Am I correct?
