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!)

reb73, at this point CDC was not set up; for looking for who put diff recovery mode a few days ago- any other options?

Sorry for the delay. Got caught up at work.
