Heads-Up When Deleting Files
If you are deleting files/lists in SharePoint 2010 and you don't see a message showing that the deleted items are sent to the recycle bin,you or your IT department will not be able to restore the files once they have been deleted.
Document Check-in and Check-Out
You should only check out a document in case you don't want any of your team members or colleagues to modify/edit it until you check it back in. If you wish to collaborate on a document, make sure that you don't check out the file.
