  • A list of the WSS 2.0 STSADM commands that you can use are here.

    As a direct answer to your question, there is no document library back-up command for SharePoint 2003, the best you'll have to settle for is a back-up of the site, as this is as granular as the native STSADM facility goes.  From here, you'd need to restore this backup into a restore or test environment and retrieve your library from there.

  • There isn't any stsadm command for this, but you can look into creating a custom recycle bin: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/cc163838.aspx

  • The title and the first question belong in the Admin forum.

    I'm deleting the second question as it has nothing to do with the title. Post it again here (programming is right for coding questions but not for stsadm questions.

  • Mike,

    I have been reading sharepoint forums for about 3 years now.  I see your name on all of them.  The problem is, the only answers I have ever seen you give are to scold someone for posting in the wrong forum.  Do you ever actually answer a question?  Clearly you are passionate about keeping the forums well organized.  Let me just say though, that us busy IT professionals just need an answer, so we usually just use google, rather than trying to navigate/traverse the myriad sharepoint forums out there.  In short, since the advent of google, if you answer the question people will find it, whether it's in the exact right forum or not.

    Cheers,

    Keith
