    I have xp pro on peer-to-peer lan. All the computers now are xp. I deleted a file located on another computer on the lan. Where do such files go? I can't find it in any recycle bin. ARe they just gone? Or hiding somewhere? I need to try and find it and restore it.

    They are gone there is no network "Recycle bin" like there is when you delete it on the local computer.

    There are 3rd party tools that create a network recycle bin but its too late if its been deleted. You may want to try a file recovery tool like Ontrack EasyRecovry if you don't have a valid backup.
