Recover file after deleted out of Recycl

By robaustin12001 ·
Yes, I have a PC running Windows 2000 Professional on a network. The person who uses the PC deleted a file, but did not go directly to the Recycle Bin first. How can I retrieve this file back once it has been removed from the recycle bin. I thought there was a place that it goes to but I may be mistaking. Please help

Thank-you

If the file was local then it should have gone into your local recyle bin.

If the file was on a network drive it should have gone into the network recycle bin for that drive (if configured) - if so then it is usually only people with direct access to the physical servers that can retrieve it.

If deleted from the recycle bin and the system has been powered off and rebooted then you will have to look toward a third party software such as undelete to to recover files that have been deleted from the recycle bin

One option is to use the Search to try and find the file,it may or may not be still on the drive after shutting down the machine

you can use Executive Software's Undelete 2.0 for Windows NT/2000. Download a free 30-day trial version of the program from http://www.execsoft .com/downloads/downloads.asp.
If this doesn't work, try DiskProbe, which is part of Windows 2000 SupportTools. hope this helps.
