Hello experts -

I have a feeling I already know the answer to this question but I figured if there was any hope, I would find it here.

My manager deleted a report from Crystal Server.  After I sufficiently chastised him, I then had to chastise myself for not keeping an up-to-date backup copy.  

So here is my question - once the reports are deleted off the server, can they be recovered?  And if yes, how does one go about doing that?

Hoping and praying,
Lisa

If you don't have a backup, then the report has been deleted and can't be recovered.  If you have the source document you originally uploaded into Crystal Reports Server, however, then you can simply re-upload it.

Don't feel too bad, btw. I've had a client accidentally delete (3 times last year) a folder with a LOT of reports in it  and I've had to walk them through restoration from their backups.
