I am looking instructions on how to setup logging and a daily report that will tell me what files a user has accessed or copied.

I would also like get a report or notification if anyone copies something to a usb drive.

You can get Windows to audit this type of information but Openaudit does not audit or store this and so can't report on it.

OK Thanks. I thought Open Audit could do that. Are there any open source programs you recommend to accomplish this?

Don't know of any Open Source or free. You'd want to enable file auditing in Windows then monitor the Event Log. Google will turn up for-pay packages but I didn't see anything specifically open source. I'm not sure a Powershell script would be all that complicated for what you want to do.

As jpa mentioned you can tweak windows event settings so these events are written to the event logs. It's possible to setup a central server to collect all the event logs from your windows servers using ELK (elasticsearch, logstash, kibana plus nginx or redis) but I'd say it's not going to be easy & these are open source apps. Lets just say it's not as easy to get this setup working, as it is to get open-audit up and running. Also, I've never tried to setup ELK to create daily reports either. You could search for those events, there may be a way to automate it.
