I fancied a quick break from making my AD reporting tool so just made a very simple GUI for viewing deleted active directory objects that have not yet passed the tombstone lifetime period (which is 180 days by default on Server 2003 SP1 onwards).
This program does not let you restore deleted objects, just see what has been deleted and when. Here’s a screenshot: http://cjwdev.co.uk/Software/ViewDeletedADObjects/Main.jpg

As always I would love to hear if it helps you out 🙂
