No, it was committed to the Attic in the subfolder where the file was deleted. I'm now on the repository and see this file in the Attic. However, I'm not sure whether to retrieve from the server side or my desktop/client side? The 3 steps I posted seem to be done from the client side? Am I on the right track? Thanks.

Did you commit the file to the Attic? i.e. cvs ci myRepoPath/Attic/myFile.txt
Or did you commit to a branch but not to main trunk (or vice-a-versa)?

If the second is the case, then you can just merge the file from the
branch to the main trunk:
cvs co myRepoPath/
cvs up -j branch_name myRepoPath/myFile.txt

(Note the lack of Attic in the path)
