Hello all,

I am using samba-3.0.10-1.fc2 and I HAD 2 directorys called music and 
Music. I checked the contents and they were slightly diffrent, so I 
deleted the older one. Turns out I deleted the wrong one.

OK the after beating me about the head with a Floppy repeatedly 
screaming BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP. Can some one tell me please if there is 
a way to restore my files? 11 GB of mp3s is a little hard to just start 
putting the discs in again.

I read that you can configure a recycle bin in older versions of Samba 
and I belive that Samba does not actually delete the files it just 
removes the pointers so is it possible to restore thouse pointers.
