You can see the name of the computer by restoring it and then clicking on 'Restore Previous Versions' - that will tell you where the deletion occured.

 

You may then get more info at www.dropbox.com/account/security about which IP it was if they are still connected.

You have to restore the file before you can see the previous versions.

thanks, I want to restore just one document to see the location, computer and others details, but no all, but it does not allow me to restore just one.  Is this posible?
