I have a tree that the Group Policy Objects have gone missing.  I was able to recover them but I do not know why they went missing.  I am also missing file such as EVENTS.MSC and logon scripts.  Does anyone know if there is something going around causing this issue?

Thanks,
Doug

The only reason I can think of is someone who have access to these files could have accidentally deleted, may be intentionally...

Have you taken a look at the security event logon of your domain controller? You may not find any if the deletion was not recent as most of the times security event logs gets overwritten a day or two. Unless you have product to manage security event logs. Usually Event ID will show you the AD Object Deleted etc. May be you should implement tools to monitor your AD activities, like you should receive alerts when AD object gets deleted.
