Hi guys, 

A silly situation here. I accidentally deleted an important geodatabase (IT are getting the backup now, phew)

But after I right clicked and deleted it, it was taking a while to finish deleting, and I was literally just watching it as it was processing. Is there a way to stop the deletion process? 

Thanks!

undelete it from Recycle Bin ... but only if it was locally stored... which I suspect it wasn't, right?

Correct, it was not locally stored...

In my experience, IT people always like candy bars;  be sure to 'tip' them if they bail you out....  😁

That should just about do it....
