We have recently purchased the Watch Directory software and have configured it to monitor files/folder using the Audit Directories plugin.
The group policy was configured to enable auditing but due to network configuration, the group policy is overridden. When the PC restarts, the group policy “Audit Object Access” defaults back to “No Auditing”. Internally, we have tried to enable Auditing through network but for some reason it is still not working. Is there anything we can do to fix this?

Any assistance you can give on this would be much appreciated.

Thank you,

I also answered your email about this.

Just an idea that came to me. Can you perhaps use the Windows Task Scheduler to create a task after boot that sets the audit policy? Never used it but this MS tool can probably do that:
