I accidentally deleted a folder from a NAS drive (My Book Live). Is there any way to recover it?

This is on a Mac. I know this may be a stretch, but I'm just hoping to find a solution.

That's what backups are for. –  David Schwartz Nov 28 '11 at 7:08
So the NAS was mounted on your Mac? Then the file never was on your Mac? Does the NAS have any sort of network recycle bin enabled? –  slhck Nov 28 '11 at 7:51

You could open it and put the hard drive('s) into your computer and use some sort of undelete application. More about this here.

Depends on the filesystem used... If it's some special filesystem you might have trouble finding recovery software which'll read it. –  HaydnWVN Nov 28 '11 at 8:32
