win 2000 server recycle bin

Is there a recycle bin on Win 2000 server which holds documents that users delete from the server?  I had a user delete something that was created today, so it wasn't backed up.  I would like to recover it.

Thanks

Hi mmacdougall,

If the user was logged in locally to the server and deleted it, then you should be OK.

I'm assuming that wasn't the case though.

If a user remotely deletes a file, then it's gone.  You'll either need to restore it from backup, or use a disk-recovery tool to try and get the file back.
You can find some info on disk-recovery tools at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Storage/Q_20778366.html

The likelihood of success depends on when the file was deleted, and how heavily the server is used.

I hope that this helps - let me know if you need any further help.

Hi

Unfortunately and irritatingly once a user deletes something from a network share it's gone unless you have a separate utility in place like undelete - there are others..

Does it work to post a comment to a thread that is so old?  I have same question.  Maybe with Server 2003 there is a solution?  That is a recycle bin concept applied to files deleted through a network share.  Like, I'm amazed there is no such function already!  I have lots of careless users.
