OneDrive for Business sync question about deleted files

I have a OneDrive for business set to sync a folder on local machine to a SharePoint online folder. One morning a message pops up in the system tray saying "Remove files from all locations? You recently deleted XXX files or moved those files out of your OneDrive folder on this device. Do you want to remove them from OneDrive and all shared libraries?" A rather alarming message. My question is, how can I see what all files were deleted or moved?
Thank you

@heavy-d

If the prompt like following appears, currently we do not have specific list to directly view these files.

Please refer to michev's suggestion.

Besides, have you recently deleted these number of files or moved them outside of the local OneDrive folder in batches?
If yes, I would also suggest you go to OneDrive Recyle Bin and local machine Recycle Bin to check whether there are any of these files.

If not , and no such changed files record in the OneDrive client panel, you could try "Restore Files", but these files may be downloaded to your local machine.

Click the Onedrive icon in the tray, it will bring up a list of recently changed files, including the deleted ones.
