You can implement auditing at the folder level, right-click and go to properties, advanced, auditing tab--or using GPO: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc787413(WS.10).aspx?ppud=4

btw i have found this *really* handy, customer claimed the server was spontaneously deleting folders so i turned on auditing and proved otherwise--however be careful how much you audit as it can affect server cpu.

I am not aware of (and cannot find with a quick search) a tool to check this.  Have you looked in the group policy yet?  BTW here's another article for you: http://www.windowsecurity.com/articles/Windows-Active-Directory-Auditing.html

It was not set with a group policy.. So you are saying that I would have to go thru all the folders..

there may be a command-line tool to enumerate this (among other things) but haven't found it yet.
