How to send Deleted Files on a Networked computer to Recycle Bin ?

I have data on a single file server on Windows Server 2008 accessed by 40 users on the network.

Is there any way that a file deleted by any of the network users goes to the Recycle Bin instead of getting deleted immediately ?

There is no recycle bin when accessing a file over the network. What you are seeing where files are deleted immediately is by design in Windows; there is no way to enable a 'network' recycle bin natively.

On a network, the feature you are looking to enable is Volume Shadow Copies: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc757854.aspx. This takes snapshots of the disks in the server at times designated by the Administrator, and makes these available to the end-user to restore data directly from this snapshot backup whenever they wish.

I was aware of the shadow copy option, was wondering if there was another way.

Any reason for the 'B' grade? Only an answer of "You can't do that" is still a valid answer under EE policy, and I gave you a workaround.

I'm sorry, I don't know any way of changing it now. Your comment was certainly helpful, but I did find a software which replaces the Recycle Bin and does the job for me.
