TRASH FILES IN SERVER

Hello how are you greetings to all!

I have a Windows server with AD and I have a GPO for addressing folders to the server (That is, the users' files are on the server and not on their machine). I have some doubts about it:

  1. If a user deletes one or more files, do they go to the server's trash or do they go to their device's trash?
  2. Is there a way that the deleted files they delete can be directed to some folder on the server? Where they can't erase it.

Thanks in advance.

Greetings Community!

    Hello Angel Marres,

    In this case the answer is that the files deleted in a shared storage or network storage for the user are completely deleted. There is no recovery neither on Local or Server Recycle Bin. One option to prevent this is to remove the Delete permission on the server folder, at NTFS level, for the specific users or security group of users.
