How to find out which a point of time when a file was deleted?

How to find the last view configuration where a file existed?

Answer/Solution:

The time when a file was deleted can be found by looking at the audit records for the folder. A deletion audit record will exist indicating the point in time when the file was deleted. If audits are not being used or the audit records have been purged, then there are no good means for finding the deletion point. A binary search starting at an arbitrary point in the past would be the most efficient way of finding the deletion point. The SDK can be used to automate this.

To find the view label where the file last existed, one would need to step through the list of labels until the file reappeared.
