i have a situation where a user was working on a network drive (server 2003)
VSS is run at 7am and 12 PM. she created a folder after 12 PM. worked on it for about an hour and then deleted it. this being a network drive it did not go to her local recycle bin. where did it go?

i checked the recycle bin on the server and it's not there either.

is there any way to retrieve this folder?

Can you right click on the parent folder which contained the deleted folder and see if you get the previous versions tab?

Portable, direct connect server access

The ATEN CV211 connects a laptop directly to any server allowing you instant access to perform data maintenance and local operations, for quick troubleshooting, updating, service and repair.

try the r-studio portable. Chances are it might can recover the deleted file. But remember to save it on another computer and run it on server. Then try to scan the drive on server, where the data was located.
After scan it might can be recovered (depends on various factors, e.g. usage level of the server disks etc.)

Good luck

never tried recovery s/w on a network drive. chances might be slim to get a good recovery if that drive is used a fair bit. recuva from piriform is free and might work, don't know http://www.piriform.com/recuva
otherwise like anoym says, not much chance.

Ok, I think you are out of luck then unless you want to utilise some commericial software or process for recovering data from the NTFS volume on the server.  In which case you probably want to take that volume offline now.
