I have a virtual server for a file server and i was cleaning up some files from my computer on that server and deleted some files in a different folder, just trying to tidy up, and it started deleting all originals???? I logged into the file server and there is nothing in the recycling bin or the one on my computer. Please help, where did it go?

Yep, just couldn't find it on here, and eventually found out on my own. Just to let everyone know, data that is deleted from a computer that is not on that computer (via network folders or whatever) is not stored in recycling bin for later. It is deleted (cut) still on the HDD until it is overwriten. Find that data with this nifty tool @undelete.
