I am searching for a way i can undelete files that are deleted by a terminal server user.

Example: X deletes a file. I want to see that x has deleted this file in a program that logs all files that are being deleted, also i want to be able to put this file back, or put it in another location.

Hope to hear soon !

Thanks BigC,

But have you installed it on a Terminal Server? I did it but all users get the same recycle bin.
Is it possible to install the product that all users have their own bin and the administrator has a bin where all the deleted files are in. So when a user deletes the file from the recycle bin, the administrator can put it back or he can see what files are deleted. For example somebody gets fired, as a revenge he deletes some files on his last day at work.

You can not seperate the files by users, instead you would have to use dates to determine when files were deleted etc.

When a file is deleted it changes an entry in the file allocation table of the specific disk. These are disk/volume specific and do not contain any user information.
