I have placed a symbolic link called .recycle in the root folder of all my
shares, all pointing to the same location on my server: /recycle

All deleted files end-up in that /recycle directory, with the _original_
permissions. (so I see nothing root only in my setup)

If you would export this directory again with samba, I guess users would
be able to undelete their own files themselves.

Anyway, the difference is maybe that I do NOT use smb.conf for
permissions, but instead apply permissions on the filesystem. My main
samba shares are exported without restrictions.

Hope that helps?
