salvage files in small business server

By mizzip24 ·
I am familiar with Novell 4, and the salvage files feature it has for those files accidently deleted by the user on the server. Does the W2K small business server have the similiar option for users? A consultant has told me no, that files can only be recovered from a prior nites backup, not salvaged as NDS does. I find that hard to believe.

Unfortunatly the answer is NO. You cannot salvage deleted files. Files which are deleted from the network are lost. You can only recover them by restoring these files from the last backup.

Or you can use 3rd party applications. But you have no use for that, at this moment, to recover what's already deleted. But maybe for the future.

Answer 2 is true, IF the space where the deleted file was is not overwritten already.

Actually, Undelete (Executive Software) does have a tool to recover files that were deleted prior to installing the software. You can download a free utility that will analyze your hard drive to determine if the files you need to recover are recoverable. But you have to purchase the software to actually recover them. Once the software is installed and configured, it will save files deleted across the network for future recovery. Their website is www.execsoft.com of you're interested. Hope this helps!
