A user deleted a file from our file server via a mapped drive on their computer.  The file was deleted a month ago so it's no longer in our backup tape rotation.  If I was to invest in software that recovers deleted files, will I find the deleted file on the server or the computer that deleted the file?  Is it even possible to recover a deleted file in this scenario?
