Hi, I have a user that spent a few hours designing a drawing today and then deleted it by mistake. We only have nightly backups. So no backup.

Would this file have been put any where on the pc or server, like the recycling bin.
its not in his bin.

cheers

Nope it is one of those lost in the network.  If you have shadow copy runnign I would try and recover it that way or you are looking at a backup.

If you aren't familiar with shadow copy you just right click the folder it was in and select previous versions or right click, select properties and then the previous versions tab.  Other than that you are out of luck.
If it was on the local machine you could try a file recovery program but it would probably be more trouble than it's worth and the likelyhood of working is slim.
