Hi, I deleted a file by accident and really need to know if there's any way to retrieve it. The nightly backup is of no use because this file had new records added today and then it was deleted. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Sorry but no way to retreive a deleted file.

===================================================

If the file wasn’t copied and/or backed up before the delete or the transactions weren’t copied and/or backed up before they were deleted and the files weren’t journaled, then it’s gone.

That’s why those facilities exist. Not very comforting now, I can imagine.

Ok, thanks for the information. The person just ren-entered all the information and we went from there. Thanks again!
