Hi. Someone restored my ipod and deleted all the info on it. Is it possible to view Windows Explorer history to see when the itunes program was accessed similar to viewing history in a browser. If I can view the history I may be able to tell who was using the computer at the time by comparing it to the browser history where i can see who loged in to their email adresses, etc.
 
Thanks in advance

And what are you going to do if you find out who had this mishap ?  I know 'revenge is a dish best eaten cold' but also 'Vengeance is Mine, sayeth The Lord'

 

I don't think Explorer has such a history, it's purely for recent searches. I think you would be better just biting the bullet and re-installing your music, videos etc. to your iPod. Probably quicker as well !

your event view might have saved it, provided this function was started. If it is your personal computer this will not tell you much other than the time iTunes was accessed. However it is unlikely that the event viewer would be set up on a personal machine for that level of scrutiny.

From {view Windows Explorer history} in Google

Best answer I found was - A good shot in Windows7 Forums but, if you Join the forum, the view is expanded much better -

If talking about viewing history in Internet Explorer 8? If so, Ctrl+Shift+H should show it to you.

We're heading off-topic here, but the Klingons always were an unforgiving race !
