Hello Everyone:
   We had an end-user delete data from a network shared drive and the folder was not included in the backups.  In the past, I've dealt with this simply by restoring from a backup but the folder was not included in the backup schema prior to the deletion.  Has anyone worked with a utility from somewhere on the planet that can retrieve data that was deleted off the server through a client machine's networked mapped drive wher the network mapped drive was located on a Win2k3 server?

You can run RR undelete on the physical machine where the files sat.  This should bring them back unless they have been overwritten already which is possible since the machines I assume is still in use.

The RR undelete software was unable to retrieve deleted data but it was worth a try and the feedback/comment was appreciated.  Tried a 2nd software utility with the same results --no data.
