    Lost files! (windows xp prof)

    I deleted an entire folder of images by mistake - couldn't find it in the recycle bin. The help desk is telling me that a networked drive should delete files to the recycle bin but I see nothing there. Where else could they have gone?????

    In Windows, only files deleted from your local hard disk(s) end up in the Recycle Bin. Files from a networked drive are deleted immediately. Does your IT department make backups of the networked drives?

    Okay, that's what I thought. The !@#$%^* guy on the help desk didn't know that. I'm sure there's a backup, I've put a call in. Thanks!
