Totally Deleted or still hope?

I have a network that is set up as a domain, very simple setup. Windows 2003 Server

One of the users deleted (via their desktop) files on their part of the server.  Is there any way of getting these deleted files back? Since it is not in the trash?

    Accepted Solution

    Try a utility like Undelete Plus
    Try not to install it on the drive that contains the deleted files or the install may overwrite them.

    ... in addition to KCTS's great advice -- cease all activity on the server.  If you're able, place it in standby (not hibernate unless you're positive the hiverfil is written to a partition other than the one that contained the deleted files).
