  • How to recover deleted files from network share?

    Here's my situation:

    An end user "accidentally" deleted files from a network share, but they are not in her Recycle Bin and when I log into the server they are not in the Recycle Bin on the server either. Where did these files go? I'm sure this must be an easy solution. Any help is appreciated.

    That's how it works, your file is gone.

      I kinda figured that would be the answer, but just wanted to be sure. I googled it too and it seems like the only way to restore is by using some third party software to undelete the files. At this point, I'm just going to tell the user it's not recoverable and to be more careful. Maybe a slap on the hand, too.

        Can't you restore from backup?

          You might want to look into enabling Volume Shadow Copies feature on that file server provided it's running Win2003. This will allow you to quickly recover files that get deleted from the network shares, as I am sure it will happen again. Just make sure that you have enough space on HD.
