Assuming you are talking about Windows...

by TechExec2 In reply to data on network drive

Assuming you are talking about Windows, when a file on a server is deleted, it does not go to the Recycle Bin. It is gone forever. To recover the file for your user, you will need to restore it from a backup. You do backup your server, don't you? :-)

Note: Early beta releases of Windows Vista suggest that this might change in Vista. You'll have to wait for the final release to know for sure.

Unless you have 2003 servers with shadow copies enabled then you will have recover the file from your backups or use a file recovery app. File recovery app should work as long as the space used by the file hasn't been reused by file system or system hasn't been defragged.
