What is a good way to determine where
a file was moved to and last modified at,
if NOT found, what day it was deleted ?

Example Timeline
  ** 1/21/14 = user saves to
  ** 2/12/14 = another user moves to
  ** 3/22/14 = another deletes from
  ** 4/15/14 = another tell me to restore
               \\filesrvr\filename.doc to
               most current version

I somehow need to know that 3/21/14 is the most current
\\filesrvr\filename.doc file, even when it is really at

you have to enable auditing of just the delete and folder/file delete objects.. This will help you in the future but not the past.
