There is nothing native to a windows server to do what you want... I am aware that there are third party utilities to do this, but their names escape me. You'd probably be better off just re-educating the users to be more careful, in the long run...

For instance, Netware has a program called filer which enables you to instantly recover a deleted file until purged. What do you use for a Windows equivalent on a 2000 file server when a file needs to be recovered quickly?
