Is there a way to configure our file server (Windows Server 2008 R2) to hold deleted files in a recycle bin?

We have a file server hosting several network drives.  If you delete from one of those drives, it appears that it's just gone.  Is there a way to have those files hit a recycle bin for a few days?  Most of our restore requests have just been deleted moments ago, yet we still have to go to the tape backup, which can take forever.  Thanks for you help!

Wouldn't Shadow Copies be the way to go for this?  Then you don't have to go back to tape to restore.

Files deleted off a network share does not get save to the recycle bin.
I agree, volume shadow copy is the way to go.
