Did you look in the Recycle bin?

I think when you delete a file over the network, it's gone. I don't think it goes in the recycle bin of either computer.

You could try running a data recovery program like Recuva on the system it was deleted from. It may still be available if it's drive space has not been over written.

I hope once you get this resolved you take the time to setup a good backup strategy so you never again lose an important file.

System Restore does not save user files, only system files so it will never be of any use for problems like this. Spend some time and money and setup a good backup strategy, you won't be sorry.

Last night I discovered a folder on my desktop which had 8.6GB of data, installers, shortcuts, etc had been emptied.

Deleted Files Log?
I recently just discovered that a file of mine was missing. I was curious if there was a place or log where I can look to see if I actually did delete it or moved it to another place. If I did delete this file, what is the best way to go about recovering it. Thanks
