Hi, it sounds like you have already been helped but it might help to ask in the discord server as well as the admins might respond faster there. It is also a great place to hang out!

@Scoder12 Thanks but i am not allowed to have discord. Thanks anyways

Contact support, one of the admins might be able to help.
Edit: one probably can, although it might not be immediat bc I think the support guy (maka) isn’t online yet, but idk

AllAwesome497 (246)

@Elizabeth_Mason email them. One sec lemme get the email

AllAwesome497 (246)

@Elizabeth_Mason ok well maka is seeing what he can do. Also, if you haven’t, you may want to join their discord server, that is if u have discord. Then you can bug maka bout it more

Yeah -- what Haya said -- thanks to everyone for helping escalate this.

Were you already helped? If not, then @katyadee might be able to help you, since she has already helped another person that I know of with this problem.

Hi Elizabeth,

I believe I've restored them all (though it looks like you deleted some more), including your missing Mad Libs files. You can thank Faris for showing me how to get those last few files.

Hello! I'll have a look and see what I can do.

@Elizabeth_Mason Hi Elizabeth -- I see the deleted files. I'll follow up with you in email.

@themaka Oh my gosh your a lifesaver. Thank you so much!

@Elizabeth_Mason I'm very curious how did it happen in steps? so that we avoid it in the future.

@hayaodeh

  1. Created folders and named one really long
  2. Try to delete just the folder
  3. Misread the information (thinking that you could transfer the the files to somewhere else
  4. typed on the folder name and hit delete
  5. freaked out

So that is how it all happened.

hayaodeh (171)

@Elizabeth_Mason So you thought that the files inside the folder will be transferred somewhere else if you deleted the folder?

hayaodeh (171)

@Elizabeth_Mason thank you. How did you hear about Repl.it and how do you like it so far? if you'd like to take this convo private feel free to email me back at [email protected]

hayaodeh (171)

@Elizabeth_Mason interesting, I didn't get it. are you sure you've sent it to the right email?

Elizabeth_Mason (5)

@hayaodeh yes oh and to answer your question...... I heard about Repl.it from my computer science teacher. I really do like the website so far and coding.
