Logging question

Is there a log I can go to that will give me the filesystem opeations of all users. I wrote a script to delete some files and I want to make sure none were deleted out of a particular directory.

AFAIK thereis no such logging in *nix. You can write a script to check the existance of files in a specified dir(s). Then schedule to run this script with crontab in every n minutes and warn if any specified file(s) not found.
