Hi, I deleted a company within sage thinking it would only delete the company name from the list of companies but it has deleted the company files off the server. I have run an undelete program on the server but it finds loads of data but not the sage deleted data. There was a lot of work done since the last backup so I need to undelete somehow. Help !

You may have "previous versions" (volume shadow copy) enabled.  Try right clicking on the folder that contained the files, select  properties, then the "previous versions" tab.  If files are present, find the most recent automatically saved version, usually 2 per day, and select restore or copy.  Restore will overwrite the current folder, restore will allow saving to a different location.

Do you not do backups of the accounts data through Sage itself?  If you do have a Sage backup then you could restore the company from that.

Also, where did you delete the company name?  If its just from the company list then it shouldn't have deleted the actual data files.  It maybe that the Company data is not stored on the server but on the local PC?
