Admins Can Now Recover Lost Google Drive Files for Their Users

Google released a slew of updates to Google Drive and Google Apps this week. One of the updates that you won't notice unless you're a Google Apps domain administrator is the new option to recover files for your users. If your users delete items and remove them from their trash, you can search for the files and recover them if your users can give you an idea of when they think they deleted their files.

Applications for Education
Being able to recover files for students who accidentally remove files could make a student's or a teacher's day. Recovering a file will also be helpful in the event that you need to look for a file that a student deleted, but that you still need to review.
