Security log object names may be irrelevant in Windows 2000

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
When you view the Security log in Microsoft Windows 2000, you may find that a hard disk drive may be logged with an irrelevant or ambiguous object name.

For example, if a user opens the N:\SecurityTest\Test.txt file, the object name may be recorded in the Security log as C:1\SecurityTest\Test.txt instead of the expected object name of N:\SecurityTest\Test.txt.

To view the Security log, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Computer Management.
  2. On the Tree tab, expand System Tools.
  3. Expand Event Viewer.
  4. Click Security.
This problem may occur if your computer contains more than 10 hard disk volumes.
