If you are using MS-DOS Delete Sentry and the setting ARCHIVE=FALSE has been changed to ARCHIVE=TRUE in the UNDELETE.INI file, some files may not be backed up in the SENTRY directory.


If you set the ARCHIVE= setting in the UNDELETE.INI file to TRUE, the only files that are stored in the SENTRY directory are those that have the Archive attribute set. Any files that do not have the Archive attribute set at time of deletion are not stored in the SENTRY directory and cannot be recovered using Undelete Delete Sentry (UNDELETE /S).


There is a possibility that the file may be recovered using the standard MS- DOS method of recovering files (UNDELETE /DOS).
