    Snapshots & Audits

      I have a requirement to monitor a specific set of files for changes over time. i know I can create snapshot and then run audits against this snapshot for changes, however this only tells me of differences from the initial snapshot.

       

      Scenario:

      file1 changes on day 1

      file1 changes again on day 2

      file1 changes again on day 3

       

      If I take a snapshot of file1 on day 1 I have my initial setup. i then run my audit job daily.

      On day 2 I detect a change from the original snapshot taken on day 1. great.

      On day 3 i detect a change from the original snapshot taken on day 1. not great.

       

      What I need to be able to do is on day 3, detect a change from day 2 and so on.

       

      Am I right in thinking in order to do this I need to create a Snapshot job to run every day updating the original snapshot and then an audit job also running daily?

       

      Are there any better ways to achieve this?
