When you say "network drive on 2003" do you mean a directory on a 2003 server that has been shared?

You can try booting the server with a bootable cd. Something like ERD Commander will usually do the trick. You might not be able to get all deleted files back, but that is your best chance if you don't have a backup.

If you enable shadow copying for data folders on 2003, then it may be possible to recover deleted files using the TWClient on PCs for future deletions.

I got a solution for you. Try this 3rd party vendor called Diskeeper. The product that they have available is called, "Undelete 5." It works wonders, and doesn't cost much. Please look in to it.
