    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 !!

    Used to be a program called Nuts and Bolts that had a feature that moved all to a recycle bin before actually deleting it, but not sure if it would work on a networked drive.
    Also Norton Utilities has something similar, but again, not sure over a network drive.
