I am working on a project which was initially developed by someone else. few of my list items are getting updated but i am not getting anything in version history. I believe that some schedule job is updating item.systemupdate(). Does sharepoint store information of item.systemupdate anywhere. I need to know who and when this item was updated (using systemupdate).
