I am a Win XP Pro user with SP2 on it.  Yesterday, i accidentally deleted a folder from the mapped drive and i would like to recover.  I looked under local machine recycle bin as well as on the server recycle bin and i cannot find that folder.   do you all know what happens to the deleted folders/files on the mapped drive ?  
Thanks in advance

You wont find it there.
If you dont have shadow copy or a backup solution, you will need to undelete it using a 3rd party utility.

Youll need to run it from the server.
The one from snapfile is the one I use most often...doesnt require an installation...

I installed r-undelete on the server but it could not find any deleted files.  I am not sure if r-delete can retrieve deleted files.  I know it can get files out of the demaged drive.  are you sure?
