IIRC most argumets agains samba-side trashcan were that it belongs
to the OS, not to samba. As for Linux, I did use some undelete patch
back in the 1.2.x days, it was quite messy, but it worked. 
I would love some really good working undelete (a la Netware), as I
have situations like yours frequently ... 
Are there some "official" words on this subject (too lazy to search
the archives :P) ? (and wheter it belongs to samba or not )


(p.s.: please use samba-technical or samba, ntdom is for ntdomain
support only)

Samba NT-Domain howto (in german)
