File Sight is reporting that Word documents are deleted. But when I go check, they are still there. What's up?

Many applications, including Microsoft Office, save your work to a temporary file while you're working on it. When you do a real 'save', the 'real' file is deleted and the temporary file is renamed to the original filename. So technically, File Sight is correct, but it's not what you want.

Go to the monitor's Streams and Behaviors tab. Check the Interpret Application Behavior box and File Sight will detect this pattern and translate it into the operation the user is intending -- to write (save) their file.
