From SSS Lab:
When you delete a file stored on a network location or mapped network drive that the file is permanently deleted. It does not go to the local computer's recycle bin and does not go to the server's recycle bin. How to enable a recycle bin for shared folders on a network ? There is the proper solution of restoring and securing your information even after deleting it - The Network Recycle Bin Tool allows you to recover deleted files. Once you have this tool in your system, it will automatically keep a track of all the network deleted files and you can easily recover them. Instead of removing the files, this tool sends them directly to its predefined recycle bin folder. There are various options to tune it up.

What's new in this version:
Version 184.108.40.206 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
Interfacece is easy to understand and use.
Easy to add folders or drives to be protected
It broke Windows Update, installer, and loading CHM files. Maybe other things, but I had to uninstall it. The error with Windows Update was 'Error 0x80070005 in Windows Update when you try to install updates'. "When I tried to install the tool to fix that I discovered the windows installer was hosed also. So just removed this utility.
I wanted it to work. I'm sorry it broke such critical functions.
When I tested this on my PC, it worked as advertised.
Unfortunatly, the person I picked this up for uses the Offline Folder functionality of Windows Network Drives. When you use Offline folders, and then you have this program protect one of those folders, you get an access denied error. I have emailed the vendor twice over a two week time span about this behavior and have not heard one word back from them. Shame shame.
If you have Offline folders, don't waste your money.
Easy and intuitive user interface. It copies network files before deleting to the own recycle bin folder. So you can easy access and recovery them any time. It works as with network drives as with local drives. You can use it for USB drives too.
There is not cons for me.
I recommend everybody to install this tool if you work with files and documents on network places.
