Restoring files

I have recently been introduced to Fedora 2 linux. Right now I have a Novell Netware server running and it has a particualr feature that I really need. I need to ability in Fedora 2 to restore an overwritten file. I have put in to each share the abiltiy to restore a deleted file but it does not work with an overwritten file. Is it possible to restore or put into the recyler folder in each share , an overwritten file just like a deleted file shows up? Thanks

This is what i am using to make the ability to restore overwritten files. Is there anything i can add to this to get it so I can restore overwriiten ones? Thanks.. Joe Borges

The short answer is NO.

You could try working around this by setting up
a complicated mechanism of watching the file-system
on a kernel-level and take appropriate action it a file
is being opened for (over-)writing ...
