when files are deleted over network, they do not go into either recycle bin.

Hi pammoun,
when you delete a file over the network, it is deleted definitely, there is no Recicle Bin for files deleted remotely.

Hi pammoun,

Angel is absolutely correct in stating that files deleted over the network are gone - for ever?

Have a look at:
You can set up your server (2003) to protect your network data.

There are some circumstances where you get network recycle bin protection natively.
If you are using folder redirection you should get recycle bin protection for the folders that have been redirected - particularly if you are using My Documents redirection.

For all other folders, you would need to get a third party utility. Look at something like "Undelete" from Diskeeper Corp:
I deploy that product as standard on main company files servers and it has been a life saver.

You could even deploy a combination of their server and professional edition, which will protect the data no matter what the user does.

I think the first answer is correct, as are all the subsequent comments, so I do not think this question should be deleted.
