To return entries from the Delete Log database, use the fetch_deletedcomponents WCAP command in either Expanded Mode or Compressed Mode:
Expanded Mode (recurring = 0)
If the recurring parameter is 0, fetch_deletedcomponents returns all instances of recurring events that match the criteria, but it does not return the master component for recurring events.
Compressed Mode (recurring = 1)
If the recurring parameter is 1, fetch_deletedcomponents returns non-recurring events and the master components for any recurring events, but it does not return individual recurring events.
If all instances in a recurring chain are deleted, the master component returns the dtstart, dtend, rrules, rdates, exrules, exdates, and uid parameters.
Also, fetch_deletedcomponents does not return master components associated with the deleted recurring instances that are still active. To return active master components, use the fetchcomponents_by_lasmod WCAP command. The fetch_deletedcomponents command should be used in conjunction with the fetchcomponents_by_lasmod command.
