When an object is deleted from Active Directory, it is not immediately erased, but is marked for future deletion. You see, Active Directory uses a replication model that is characterized as "multi-master loose consistency with convergence". Changes can be made on any DC in the forest, and the changes are then incrementally replicated throughout the forest. Therefore, object deletions in this environment cannot simply remove an object, because doing so would remove the unit of replication itself.

You can restore the users by using LDP.exe, ADRestore.net, etc..

Note :- Please be more specific while asking your query.

And also we have restored Active directory from Backup, and it is running fine even though the users are deleted one by one

@dhanush_support can you clarify what you mean when you say the users are deleted one by one.  You referred to a missing property TAB in an earlier post.

Can you confirm how many AD servers you have and where they are located i.e. same network or different locations

You need to install an auditor which will track all your activities happening in your active directory
It will give you an alert for any critical incident viz creation , deletion, Modification as well  in your Active Directory .

@Pankaj_401 a monitor will just confirm what is happening not the cause of the problem.

We need further clarification of the problem first.  Is this a case of missing properties or actual users being deleted from the Active Directory
