Not true. There are utilities available, and I've seen more than one HOWTO on this subject. Use google. > Is anyone aware of an approach to get some kind of soft deletion > functionality on freeBSD.

Intelligent file management. It's rather interesting to note that the Windows world focuses on recovering from mistakes _after_ they happen, whereas the Unix world focuses on working in such a way that mistake recovery will be trivial. Windows -> Oops, I screwed up, let me publish the crazy things I had to do to recover from my mistake. Unix -> I'm going to do this important stuff. Before I start, I'm going to assume that the fact that I'm human means there's a good chance that I'll make mistakes and corrupt or lose things, so I'll take steps from the get-go to make it easy to backtrack when that happens.
