Hi there and welcome

Do you mean you are trying to find out when a file was deleted that you downloaded?

Please let me know

don't want to pay additional cost
Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 1 year ago

Ok, whilst you can recover deleted files you cannot actually see when you deleted these.

Do you wish to recover the deleted file?

no
Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 1 year ago

ok, windows keeps no record of when actual files are deleted sorry

You can use software such as netwrix which will monitor this and tell you, it is designed for company servers

https://www.netwrix.com/file_server_auditing.html

It cannot tell you when past deletions occurred but anything deleted or altered once the software is installed, will then be recorded

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
