This may be written to the Windows Event Log (Application Event Log)

AFAIK, you will have to create CDC (Change Data Capture) to start auditing such changes.

This is a good article to review (the author is a well respected expert here - chapmandew, he may have an article here too!)

Hi,
I tested it doing a change on a database from full to simple option and the event was written to the Windows Event Log (Application Event Log) including the username, eventid  and the timestap etc...

Sorry for the delay. Got caught up at work.

It should be Event ID 5084
