Windows Vista has an inbuilt undelete system based on Windows Server 2003's versioning file system, Microsoft has revealed. The technology, which is automatically switched on in Vista, will be a boon for anyone who has accidentally overwritten their PhD thesis with a BPAY receipt.

OK, fine, storage is cheap. But what about the network? Won't this increase the amount of traffic over the network for those companies that save everything on servers? We have 11,000 employees, and this can make a big difference.

Network bandwidth should not be affected by this "undelete/versioning/shadow copy" feature. Windows 2003 server had this implemented, and in your case all the files residing on the server would be "shadow copied" locally. In your case (when user files are on the network ) I would try to disable "undelete" running localy on the workstations, why vaste resources if it's not needed.
