564: Object Deleted

On this page

When an object for which successful delete access has been enabled for auditing, Event 564 is logged upon actual deletion. To determine the name of the object deleted look for a prior event 560 with the same handle ID. Normally event 560 and event 564 will be in close proximity but it is theoretically possible for a process to open an object (560) for delete access and then actually delete it much later. See event 560 for further information.
