Information cut to the clipboard has disappeared

Posted on 2011-04-25

I had a user cut information from a folder on the server and somehow lost it. Is it possible to recover the information either on the server or the workstation? I don't have much hope but thought I would ask since I'm at a loss. The data was created today, so the backup does not help. Just wondering if the clipboard writes anything to the registry or a temporary file.

Thank you.

    If he cut the folder from the workstation, it would stay at the same location until pasted to a new location.

    So this means that he pasted it somewhere if it no located at the orginal location.

    If you can find out what the folder name/file names were used, try searching the drives that this user had access to.

    Like I said, just cutting a folder prepares it to be moved to a new location, but will not move it unless you paste it to another location.

    Hope this helps,
