See what others say. Deleting a server file from a workstation is permanent and without a backup, I think it is lost (especially from that far back).

You could try an undelete tool, but I wouldn't get my hopes up. 31 days is a long time for that memory space to get written over. I think that's your only chance though.

Most undelete programs are for workstations and servers overwrite disk space MUCH faster than do workstations (more users).

With no backup and no shadow copies going back 31 days, your only hope is to find a server version of Undelete.

If the disk space has not been over written, then a utility like this is your only way to recover that file:

Hope this helps!
