Retrieving files deleted from server

Found this forum today while trying to find a way to undelete files, deleted straight from the network/server.

Today at work I accidently deleted some images from the server/network and they are not in my trash and i can't find them anywhere, does anybody know how to undelete files that were deleted straight from the server?

Help will be greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately, files deleted from a network share, such as a server, do NOT go to the Trash, but are instead removed immediately. Thus, there is no simple way to recover them. You can use a data rescue program, which might work, if the part of the drive the deleted files were on hasn't been reused yet.

You should be able to contact your network administrator and have him restore them from one of the backups that they should have. Hope that helps.
