Hi Friends,

I deleted some of the files and folder in network. I thought it will be in the recycle bin. But when I check the local system and server, I could not found any files. How can I retrieve the files and folder?

If you have the Volume Shadow Copy service setup on the server you might be able to use the Previous Versions tab and restore them.

Otherwise you need to head to whatever backup of the system you have.

Hi raja0123,
Deleting files from a network filestore doesn't put them in any recycle bin.  Once you delete them, they're gone.

To get them back you'll have to restore the files from any backups that you have.  If you don't have backups, it might be possible to use disk recovery tools to get the data back.  I wouldn't  get my hopes up over that though,.

I concur with both answers given.  Recovering files from a server using file recovery software could work; but it's unlikely because on a server there is typically a lot of disk activity and the area of the disk that was occupied by your data is likely been overwritten by now.

Unless you have offline files on. That seems to send items to recycle (local copies) on XP (mapped documents & settings).

But is not the case...
