Unfortunately, Outlook doesn't have an easy way of showing you what reminders were dismissed. You can create a view that includes the modified field, then sort or filter by it to see when the items were dismissed.

Try this. Test it on test mailbox first
1 Close Outlook. Click "Start" and then "Run" on your desktop.
2 Type "cmd" into the box, and press "Enter." A black "Command Prompt" window will load.
3 Type "outlook.exe /cleanreminders" and press "Enter." Restart your computer.
4 Open the "Command Prompt" again and type "outlook.exe /cleanfreebusy." Press "Enter." Reboot your computer.
5 Launch the "Command Prompt." Type "outlook.exe /resetfolders" into it and press "Enter." Restart your PC.

Deleted tasks go to the deleted items folder.  I believe this is true for all versions of outlook.  If you have not emptied the deleted items folder, they should still be there.  If they are gone, you may still be able to get them by going to TOOLS and RECOVER DELETED ITEMS which will let you view the items you deleted from your deleted items folder (depending on your exchange server settings).  Click the ones you want and select RESTORE.  They will go back to the deleted items folder, where you can drag them back to TASKS...I think.

Good luck!
