While viewing Deleted Folders, it would be more helpful if it would show as Deleted or Moved or Renamed.  Currently it just showes as Deleted.  It's not very helpful when you tracking down an event that removed a folder.  I propose that the Deleted folder could have a dropdown box that would specify moved, deleted or renamed.  You could even have a link to the "event" (dropbox/events)

 

I reciently recovered a very large deleted folder and that has caused lots subfolders that had previously been deleted, moved or renamed to also recover... what a mess!  So I have to search out and find these old versions and delete them. 

 

I also noticed that when I am looking at the "Dropbox Events", that if a folder is Moved it showes as two seperate events "abc Folder Moved" and then it shows "abc Folder Deleted".  Maybe even have a link that takes you to the coresponding dropbox/events page.
