Lost folder recovery


One of my students accidentally deleted a folder with his project in it. Is there a way to recover it?


Cloud9 has a file history feature, so if you recreate the folder and create empty files with the same names in that folder, you can then right click inside the editor, choose File History, and click the arrows to choose the version you want. Once clicking the Revert button, make sure to save. Cloud9 gives the impression reverting automatically saves, but if you close the file and open it again, it will be empty. Unfortunately, you’ll have to do this for every file, so hopefully you remember the files. In the future, try using a tool like Git with GitHub to reduce the risks of losing code.
