Accidental delete loses any work performed

So I worked all day on an excel file in PDM, that was checked out to me.  I had some other files in the folder I didn't need so I deleted them.  I accidentally also deleted the file I had worked on all day.  "Hey no problem, PDM has Recover" I thought.  Wrong... it had deleted my local copy completely.  Replaced it with prior checked in version.

Yeah I clicked the wrong button, but if this had happened OUTSIDE PDM, the file still would have been in the recycle bin, no data loss.


I tried using disk drill to get it back, no luck as the recover apparently overwrote the remnants!




Anyone else have this happen?  Any way to stop PDM from losing data in this way?
