A user's data sub-folder has allegedly moved location on an SBS 2011 Server. Is is possible to see from the logs who might have done this, or change the logs settings so I can know in future.

Let's wait a little but unfortunately suspect you are correct. I would have thought that logging on that scale would create ridiculous logs. I can see when the folder was created but not by whom.

Yes by turning on auditing.. but the logs will be huge.. a move is a copy and a delete.
