Recycle Bin

By jyimcse ·
Any one know how to make a deletion on a network drive go into the recycle bin? Microsoft KB says this is by design. I need to be able to restore if a user deletes a file on their home directory.

Recycle Bin

by XpertDragon In reply to Recycle Bin

Files deleted from a DOS prompt, floppy disk or from a network computer DO NOT go to the Recycle Bin. The moment they are deleted they are gone, period. There is no built-in Windows method for recovering such files, although recovery is sometimes possible with certain third-party disk utilities. However, someone may know of a Really good third-party utility, such as "Undelete" or a Registry Hack. I would make sure that under the Recycle Bin Properties setting, that "Confirm each Deletion" is checked to at least give some files a second chance in the war path of you users.

In my opinion, your best bet is education of users about a level of importance of the files they deal with everyday. That and a combination of good Backups across your entire network, and that trusty "Undelete" utility you can use on an emergency by emergency case basis....wether its the Utility actually called "Undelete" or a similar freeware utility for recovering files that you can always rely on.

Best of Luck!

Install norton utility software and it has a undelete program in it. also you can run backups on all the directory's adn restore them. use the navtive backup software from microsft and create the backup as a file on the server or another server.
the undelete will only work it the space on teh hard drive is not over written by some other file.
