Hi all,
Is any way I can find out who deleted a folder ( data) on the server 2008.
We already gave access to every one, through a security group (read modify) and some one deleted  data .

Please let me know if there is a command line to run in active directory, on in AD.



Thanks
Rabih

windows maintains many event logs, the most familiar are
application
security   <<<------
system

if on right clicks on a folder, security settings, advanced, this will show the audit settings
What you are interested in is event 560 in the security event logs.
