Is there a way to recover data files that are accidentally deleted on a Windows 2019 Server file server? We have a pair of Win2k19 servers running DFS-R and sharing the folder for departmental data shares. I've routinely received requests from users stating that a file is "missing" and needs to be recovered. Although I'm lucky enough to be able to find the files on our old server, I am concerned that there may come a moment where I won't be able to pull it back from an archived directory.
Volume Shadow Copies option seems to be overkill for what I need as this will recovere the entire folder when all I need is just a single file. I may be misunderstanding how it works, but I don't want to revert all the data back to the designated time, but recover a single missing file.
