    When I delete something from a network hard drive, it's gone for good. Is there a way to put a recycle bin in the drive ? Or some option to retrieve the file if I want it later ? For right now I have put a folder on the desktop and called it "To be deleted later" and when I am 100% ready, I'll go in that folder and delete the stuff. Thanks for any help !!

    That's the way network file access works, you kill it, it's dead! :rolleyes: There are some 3rd party solutions to the issue, but I've never really looked into them.

    Here is my lone experience with 'UNDELETE' programs:
    Folks tend to NEED them AFTER they have deleted something important.
    So you go get one of these softwares, you install it, and more often than not, it tells you to reboot after you have installed it.
    The problem here MIGHT be that when you reboot, the Swap file MAY write over what you are trying to recover/undelete, so you may not find it, it may be gone for good.
    So if you think you might need this software in the future, get it now and install it now.
