I have a few users that are quick on the trigger when it comes to deleting files.
Is there a way to set up a safe folder and have the deleted files sent to or copied there as a safety net? I really Don't want to buy one of those undelete programs.

If I understand you question correctly -

Are you trying to create a bullet proof method to recover deleted files?

What about restoring from backup such as shadow copy, users can restore themselves. Instead of turning a file server more complex than it needed?

If  a user remove a file by shift + delete, the only way to recover is from undelete software or yet ... "be responsible".

Thanks Mazdajai,
Your Right!!
My users lack I spend more time recovering from backups than I want to say.
I just want a file to send all their deletes to that they can't delete themself's.

Not possible if users have rights. I am afraid the only solution is to deny their rights to delete which leads to inefficiency and overhead to you.

Consider my previous suggestion - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/832217
