sbs 2008

Hi all,

A company we support running an sbs 2008 server has had an employee to be sacked.

The employee has deleted some company files from their server share and they want them to be recovered.

Now first question when the person deleted the files will this be sent to a 'recycle bin' on the server or deleted permanently?

secondly if the files have been deleted permantently the server is backed up every night so can we simply open the server backup and pull out the missing folders?

thanks in advance,

Matt.

What backup program are you using?  You should be able to just open the most recent full backup and restore the folders that were effected to their original location.  After that you'll want to run the differential backups to the date of the deletion to make sure that all changes are restored as well.
