Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a Ubuntu server 12.04 in my network and there are 20 workstations connected with this server through NFS.

Just now someone moved my share folder and files to somewhere else.

Now I already found my files, but I would like to know how to search or check in system log to track which workstation moved the files?

I wanted to find who moved the files, and prevent this from happening again.

Any way to check?

I tried /var/log/syslog but it doesn't seem to contain the information I need.
