Check if your auditing is enabled.

  1. Navigate to Site Settings → Site Collection Administration → Site collection features → Choose “Reporting” → See if it is activated else Press “Activate”.

  2. Navigate to Site Settings → Site Collection Administration → Site collection audit settings → Check if “Deleting or restoring items” is checked else check it → Click “OK”.

  3. Navigate to Site Settings → Site Collection Administration → Audit log reports → Deletions → Open the generated report in Microsoft Excel.

  • If the deletion is made by Powershell?

  • I don't think audit logs are just tied to UI actions but more to the actual data in the database, so any actions (UI or Powershell) should get recorded. However, it would be interesting to see what it takes as user information when it records a deletion using powershell (I assume it would be the sharepoint account) May 8, 2015 at 14:58
  • Thanks a lot. One more question. If I delete an item o group by Powershell, is possible to recorver it?

  • Items deleted by powershell do not go to the recycle bin, so will not be available for recovery May 8, 2015 at 16:13
