Additionally, the audit logs are unwieldy and verbose. – mfinni Jun 9 '10 at 13:54

To see who has files open on a particular share you can also use the shared folders snap-in. You can add it through MMC (called Shared Folders) or you can access it via the Run menu with the command, "fsmgmt.msc". I know this isn't what you asked for but it still might be useful to you. Good luck!
