    To recover a deleted file you have to access the files original location through a share. When you say there was nothing when you right clicked I assume you were trying to access it directly on the server? try doing it from the workstation.

    If memory serves me right there is also some software that you need to install on your workstation to access the previous version.

    Yes, you need to install twcli32.msi, which you'll find in the WINDOWS\system32\clients\twclient folders. And yes, it only works through a share, not on the server itself.
