All of our user's files are on a Windows 2003 server. If they delete a file accidentally it used to go to their recycle bin, when the file was on their pc. Now it doesn't, which makes sense since the file wasn't on their computer to begin with. What I'm wondering if there's a way to retrieve the file other than using backup tapes? I've looked on the server's recylcle bin and the file doesn't go there either. Where does it go? Is there a setting I can turn on that forces it to go to either the user's or the server's recycle bin?
I'm just a little surprised that Microsoft doesn't make it as easy as it used to be to retrieve a file you didn't mean to delete.
Thanks for the help.
