Audit: Audit the use of Backup and Restore privilege

Description

This security setting determines whether to audit the use of all user privileges, including Backup and Restore, when the Audit privilege use policy is in effect. Enabling this option when the Audit privilege use policy is also enabled generates an audit event for every file that is backed up or restored.

If you disable this policy, then use of the Backup or Restore privilege is not audited even when Audit privilege use is enabled.

Note

  • When configuring this security setting, changes will not take effect until you restart Windows.

Default: Disabled.

Configuring this security setting

You can configure this security setting by opening the appropriate policy and expanding the console tree as such: Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options\

For specific instructions about how to configure security policy settings, see Edit security settings on a Group Policy object.
