Hi Everyone,

We have a user whos contacts have been erased and replaced with another users contacts.

Unfortunately, 3 other users have full access to her contacts folder.

Is there any way that we can track who deleted / replaced her contacts?

Mailbox Level Auditing should be enabled to find the deletion information. Below article will help you to enable this.

NB:-This is should be enabled prior to the event; otherwise no way to find.

If auditing was not enabled prior to this happening, then you cannot track the person who made the changes. Maybe nows a good time to enable it.
