How the Recycle Bin works? We have a huge prob


We have a DNS-327L
Accidentally yesterday a colleague , somehow ,someway ...whatever deleted a share folder from the nas which has 1gb files...
Thanks God...we have enabled the recycle bin and i found the folder
Copy - paste and voila back to the directory
But... The 90% of the files renamed
For example . The original file was offer.doc . Renamed to Copy of offer.doc.tmpxxxxx . I can see also the original file but the size is 0kb and i must rename
the tmp in order to work with the file.
This is not a problem but we have over 3000 files in over 150 different subdirectories


* What Hardware version is your DNS? Look at the sticker behind or under the device.
* Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the DNSs web page under status.
* What region are you located?

Am I correct in assuming that you DO NOT have a backup of your data for such problems as this?

If that is the case you need to copy the .tmpxxx files (assuming they are the complete and readable) over to a computer where they can be renamed using a batch script.  When you have them all renamed, checked for consistency and in the correct directories, turn off the recycle bin and delete the old directory and what you recovered on the NAS.  Then copy the complete directory structure and files back to the NAS.

Finally, make a full backup of all the data on the NAS to another drive somewhere safe then start a daily backup of the changed data that you store on the NAS

Unfortunately I can't comment about how the recycle bin works because we never use it nor do we set it up for our clients (having a reliable, tested full backup is a much safer option) but I assume its main use is to catch the odd file that accidentely gets deleted rather than the vast number you have.
