Network-based Recycle Bin


I'm looking for a network-based Recycle Bin, something similar to Diskeeper Undelete for my new 64-bit Windows Server 2008 R2 based File Server.

I was using Undelete 5 for years but the sales department of Diskeeper is unable to provide me with a trial of the 64-bit version of Undelete 2009. I know, it's a shame, but they have only 32-bit trial. And, on the other hand, I cannot spend 500$ on product that I didn't test and that, I think, is still not certified for R2 by Microsoft.

Does anybody have tested this software on R2?

Is there any other similar solution?

Thanks a lot

I wasn't able to convince Diskeeper sales to provide me with a trial copy of the 64-bit version of their software, so we decided to abandon this tool on our new server, even if it was very useful for us on Windows Server 2003 32-bit.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Why not use volume shadow copy - is already included in Windows - all you have to do is enbale it

Yes, the shadow copy could be a solution but it is not as a real Recycle Bin.

I concur with the use of Volum Shadow copy.  And if you are mostly storing documents on a file server, you can move / install Windows SharePoint Services.  This will give you further online collaboration functionality.  Possibly some search capabilities, but definetly a user recycle bin and then an admin recycle bin.
