    A user accidently deleted a excel file and asked me if I could retrieve it. It should of been in the recycle bin but it wasn't. I repeated the problem and no deleted files were going there.
    Any clues? Tom

    In Recycle bin properties, make sure box is unchecked for "Do not remove files to the Recycle Bin. Remove files immediately when deleted."

    IF you are deleting from a network location, ie the file is on the network server, then the file automatically will be deleted. I don't know if there is an option to change that. If it is on a network then you will need to call your system administrator.

    Hope that helps.

    Recycle bin only works for the drive it's on. There is no recycle bin for network drives, floppies, zips, CDs, etc.
