Dear cawasaki,

you may want to check out the "NetWrix Active Directory Change Reporter" which you should be able to get for less than a tenth of the Quest Recovery Manager for Active Directory.
Both of those, and some some of the free alternatives, are covered in the great article "2 Tools to Restore Active Directory Objects" by Eric B. Rux available on http://www.windowsitpro.com/article/active-directory/2-tools-to-restore-active-directory-objects-

Kind regards,
Soren

2008 R2 can restore deleted object (garbage collection) in AD DS and you can disable deletion of objects for free.

1.! All DC's in a domain need to be upgraded to Windows Server 2008 R2 to raise the domain functional levels to "Windows Server 2008 R2"

2. You will not be able to upgrade the forest to the 2008 R2 until the final domain is upgraded as well.

3. You can enable Active Directory Recycle B in only if the forest functional level of your environment is set to Windows Server 2008 R2.
