  • Hi,

    In CRM 4.0 you can install the free Audit Log accelerator available to keep track the record changes/deletion, or you can develop a plugin register it on Pre-Operation stage for Delete message of Contact and Activity entity (i.e. phone call, task) CRM 4.0 , in your plugin code you can retrieve all details for the entity record which deleting with the User who is deleting and can track these changes into the Custom entity.

    CRM 4.0 does not immediately deletes record from the database, it immediately mark/flagged record for deletion "Soft Delete" and then the CRM Service will permanently deletes once the maintenance service schedule runs then try using the following simple add-on (http://crmrecycle.codeplex.com/) for recovering deleted records (CRM service mark record in table as delete (soft delete) and there is guarantee that the data will be available for recovery) 

    For plugin development you may refer: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd393295.aspx

  • My suggestion moving forward is to remove all delete rights from Security Roles and train users to deactivate.  I generally take this approach on all implementation unless the client insists that delete rights are needed.

    As referenced in other responses, you'll need to leverage Audit capabilities either in the out-of-the box available features, through an add-on product or leveraging customization.  I suspect none of these methods will help with the current issue.  Your best course of action movign forward is to remove the ability to delete records from the security roles.

    Regards, Donna
