Hi there, I mistakenly deleted the contents of a file in one of my projects. Is there any way to recover the contents?
Yes, we can probably get that back for you. What’s the project/filename, and around what time did you delete it?
Hey Tim, thanks! The project is called
trellocity and i probably erased the file,
server.js, around 9-10 this morning. also erased
readme.md but thats not as important as
Okay, it’s back. Also, posts must be > 20 characters
Great, thank you! Looking forward to revision history as a feature
I would also like to restore a file that I accidentally deleted (it’s a bit too easy to click on the wrong button in this UI)
Its in the file skills/android_stuff.js in project
meteor-property, was deleted today at around 1:15 PM CET
If you message me a join link (click on my name), then I can restore the file for you.
Sorry but I don’t find any way to send a private message to someone, where can I find this?
Click on my name and use the message button.
When I click your name a pop is opened showing your badges and stuff, but I really don’t see any message button. Could it be that I don’t have permission for this?
Ok, instead email it to me
Ok, it should be back now
Hi!! I am having the same problem – I deleted it today around 21:36 and the file’s name is branch-kitty. Could someone please help me out?
I’ve restored the project content to the backup we took Sep 17 at 20:33 – around 1 hour earlier than when you deleted that file.
Hello, I accidentally deleted a project of mine, as well as a file on that project. Is there any chance of getting it back?
The project was called
x-o and was deleted on
Feb 07 2018, at around
The file that was deleted was called
server.js and was deleted at about the same time.
Please help me get the project back.
we undeleted the project. You can use
git from the Console (Project Menu -> Advanced Options -> Open Console) to try to restore your
server.js file. If you don’t know how to use
git, let us know and we’ll try to restore the file manually
Hello! Thank you for restoring the project. Unfortunately whenever I try to edit the project, it says
Hmm... we are having trouble connecting. Try refreshing? I have tried refreshing as well as accessing it from two different computers, however it did not work. Please could you help me?
Also, I do not know how to use
git, so if you could manually restore the file, that would be great!
sorry for the issues! I think I’ve restored your project to a point in which server.js is there. Let me know if you need an earlier snapshot
Hello, sorry to disturb you again! Unfortunately, the file
server.js is not in the project.
Here is an image of all the files in the project.
Many thanks, @etamponi
server.js file is part of the project - the project runs as if it were there. However, I cannot see the file itself and therefore cannot make changes to it. Any idea on what to do?
I can see the server.js file… can you retry?
