I have a windows 2000 domain.  Whenever a client machine deletes something from within a shorcut that points to a shared folder on the server, the file is not going to anyones recycle bin, including the server.  Why aren't these files going to the recycle bin?

Hi

The recycle bin only collects deleted files from the LOCAL hard drives. So if you delete a file from the C drive on your client pc, it goes into the recycle bin. If you're logged onto the server, and delete a file from the local hard drives on the server again it will go into the recycly bin. But there's no built in catch-file type recycle bin for files deleted from network drives or folders. Once deleted, they're gone. You either have to restore them froma back-up or use a third party utility like undelete.

Some links to illustrate:

Basically Microsoft just didn't design it to be that way! (typical! ;-))

I guess thats a pretty good reason to run differential backups rather than just full backups everynight then huh.  Thanks for the info.
