As far as I am aware they are gone once deleted from network drive.

You are looking at shadow copy of folder or back i am afraid.

Hi,

I would suggest you to recover it from the backup rather than using any 3rd party tool. If you don't have any valid backup then you can think of using any 3rd party tool.

Good luck

I don't know about your backup strategy, usually if you use daily differential/incremental and weekly full backup.
If the user modified the files on Wednesday and deleted it on thursday, then you have to run the full backup first and then wednesday's diff/incremental backup. So that the deleted files can be restored.

Since if there is no back up then its very hard to guess how to back up the file. You can check the events if possible and if at the events there is any log by that name then it can be said as you can back up that file, else for future if you need not to happen such a events at the upcoming date you can use a third party auditing tool that can let you to monitor all of your files and folder in the coming days.

I know one or two that can create such a work happens.

Thanks
