Deleted files notifications

Explorer | Level 4

Recently one of our users deleted a large number of files. This was, fortunately, noticed early, and the files recovered, BUT as an Admin for our business, I would really like to opt to get an email urgently when a significant number of files are delted, but am I correct in saying that only the User that does the deleting can get such a notification?

If this isn't currently an option, I'd really like to suggest it be added to a wish-list.

Only the user does get it I'm afraid

And as this is a request for a new feature I'll move it to the right area for you

I suggest that there is a warning and confirmation request when someone delete a bunch of files and folders.  I think this is a simple but important improvement.

It happens rarely, second time in 5 years for us, but when it happens the business is widely affected.  And we don't know exactly why... wrong time on a pc?  Moved root folder out of dropbox?  Thousands of files instantly deleted, and restore can take time.
