Use the following command below to accomplish this...

Import-module activedirectory
$date = get-date 02/12/2013
get-aduser -filter * -properties * | ? {$_.enabled -eq $false -and $_.whenChanged -eq $date} | select Name, whenChanged, Enabled

Open in new window

If the account has been modified since it was disabled then the time will change.

Use the following command and you can sort the time and easily see what accounts have been disabled during the time/day you have specificed.

get-aduser -filter * -properties * | ? {$_.enabled -eq $false} | sort -property whenChanged | select name, enabled, whenChanged

Open in new window

You can also export this to a csv as well see below...

get-aduser -filter * -properties * | ? {$_.enabled -eq $false} | sort -property whenChanged | select name, enabled, whenChanged | export-csv "c:\disabledusers.csv"

Open in new window

There is no timestamp for this specifically. Assuming the accounts haven't
been touched since you disabled them, you can look at the whenLastModified also you need to look at  two fields for this:
"userAccountControl" and "whenChanged"
In "userAccountControl" indicates a disabled account"whenChanged"should tell you when the account was disabled.
