There is an UNDELETE command in DOS but you have to know the first letter of the file.

This command only works as long as no files are written to the same sector on the drive that the file use to reside in. In other words, right after you deleted the file. If the file had been gone for a long time then I hope you had a backup.

Ace, Netware is not dos. You can't use a local command on a netware server. Salvage utility is the correct answer.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
