Retrieving Deleted Network Files

We have a small local network set up at my office. 1 computer acts as the server and holds all the files, the other computers use a mapped network drive to access the server. If a user on one of the non-server computers deletes a file, it doesn't go into his recycle bin. I don't think it goes into the server's recycle bin. Is there any way of getting it back? The file was created this morning so it wouldn't be in any of our backups.

If you have continued to use the server, then your chances of getting the file back have just been reduced

Try a product like getdataback and run it on the server.

or you can try this similar, but free product


restoring from the server when deleted from a workstation is sort of worst case next to a drive failure, it's worth a try though.
