Being in the IT field, i sometimes have to deal with requests that just make you wanna kill yourself and can pretty much relate to the IT crowd show. I had a call from a colleague, also a good friend, asking me if he can retrieve a file he had deleted and is not showing in the recycle bin anymore.
I told him that any file he puts on the desktop cannot be retrieved easily cause it’s not his files but shared files, that’s why he should group his files and put them under the folder “My Documents” as it is his personal space.
He presumably understood what i told him and few minutes later, called me telling me that he did as i advised him to.
I passed to check what he did an hour later out of curiosity, turns out he created a folder ON THE DESKTOP and put all the files in it !!!
I smacked him and moved the files into “My Documents”.
hehehe, I love this show!
well you can find your deleted file. if the file is on Desktop as you mention
you can do a system restore to an earlier time
Download a program called recover my files
so you can find
* Deleted Files;
* Lost Files;
* Formatted Disks;
* RAW Disks;
* Missing Drive Letters;
* Windows Reinstalls or system restores
and better not to save your file in My document Folder try to Keep the C: Drive clean and save all the important file on D: so in case that the C: Drive crash you can take all your data from D:.
have a nice day
I know we can retrieve the file. I said it cannot be retrieved easily and we are talking about thin clients here, not desktop pcs.
It is a tiresome process to do it every time a user loses a file because he is too lazy to move them into the my documents folder.
