I place a symlink in the root directory of all my shares pointing to a 
dedicated /recycle directory which is NOT shared.

Result is that all deleted files end up under this /recycle directory, 
where they can be recovered by me.

Also: if you use quota, deleted files do no longer count for a users 
quota, which is logical as well.
