Recover Deleted File from SBS 2K3

I'm running an SBS 2003 with about 25 clients all windows XP.

I have a client computer that deleted files off of the network "Shares" folder.  The files are obviously not in the client's recycle bin or in the server's recycle bin. The files were added this morning and deleted this morning, so the weekend backup doesn't have them and the 7am shadow copy (previous versions) doesn't have them. Anywhere else I can restore a file from?

Thanks,
-Paul

If disk activity is low, you may be able to run a recovery program like GetDataBack from www.runtime.org to get to them.

Otherwise, there will be nothing else unless the user is running Vista and has ShadowCopies on their own machine.

I used a program called File Recovery from LC Technologies. Worked great.  Thanks for the suggestion.
