I have Norton GoBack installed on a server. If I delete a file from the server and attempt to restore the file, GoBack restores the file. However, if I map the drive on my desktop computer and delete a file from the server, GoBack doesn't see nor recognize that the file has been deleted and there for can not restore the file. Has anyone run into this issue? Any know a fix? I haven't been able to find anything about this, if someone can help...PLEASE DO! Thank you so much...

according to symantec:
To use Norton GoBack, your computer must have one of the following Windows operating systems:

Windows 98/98SE*admin
Windows 2000 Professional

Windows XP Professional /Home Edition
Windows XP Tablet PC/Media Edition

what os are you using?

go back is meant for normal pc use and not server/enterprise backups. Think of "go back" as a glorified version of "system restore" in xp. it doesn't have the capability to monitor network connections/remote users.

It is running in a Windows 2000 environment. If GoBack won't work, do you suggest any other applications that would do the basic same thing in a server environment? Thanks for your help!
