Recovering Deleted Files
danielpaterson (0)

Hi all,
I placed all the files I had for a school project into a file in order to organize them. I recently tried to delete a different empty folder, but clicked on the one with my entire project in it instead. I know that there is a history option, but as far as I can tell that only lets me go back to previous versions of existing files, not reload files that are missing. Is there any way to get these very important files back?

Create that deleted file again, and click history. Voila!

I honestly cannot believe that worked. This feels like the jankiest thing ever and I absolutely love it. Thank you so much! @Coder100

repl.it is a bit quirky in that way lol @danielpaterson
