Is there any way to recover a lost directory? [message #44632] Fri, 30 May 2003 14:02 Go to next message

Hi,

I store my subdirectory containing my images into the "Default Output
Folder" setting under Properties -> Java Build Path.

I just realised that somehow the IDE wiped off my entire "images"
directory. How can I recover my directory, and how to prevent this? Is
this an IDE bug? Or maybe I am still not familiar with Eclipse IDE.

Any advice please.

Many thanks,
mobiko

Eclipse automatically "scrubs" a Project's output directory whenever a
full rebuild of the Project is triggered ("scrub" means "clean out
everything in the directory"). This is intended behavior. It is not
logical to place files in that directory manually - that is your build
output location, not a place to store files permanently.

You may be able to recover stuff from that directory by selecting it in
the Navigator view, right-click on the directory, and choose "Restore
from local history..."

HTH,
Eric

In 2.1, you can also tell Eclipse to no longer clean the output folder (you
are supposed to manually do so when it makes sense to you).
See preference>Java>Compiler>BuildPath>Scrub output folders on full build.

Now, if you are willing to have picture resource files on the runtime path
by putting these into the output folder, then the preferred way to achieve
this is to store these resources into a separate class folder which is
appended to your classpath (see project properties>Java Build
Path>Libraries>Add Class Folder). All resources located into a class folder
will be left untouched, and made available at runtime.

Alternatively, you could mix these files with your source files (next to
them) and then they would get duplicated into the output folder.

I tried to recover a deleted sub directory with a free recovery app, but it even find a single file from the drive. Any ideals? It's a code folder not resource.

You still have a chance to recover your deleted directory or other data as long as they're not over-written by newly created data, then try some free Android data recovery software to scan your device.

Can't deny the data loss became common issues , Because of our phone is always in a state of update operation, the data loss is unavoidable , it is true, when we meet this problem , what we need have a solution to recover back lost data , there are many tutorials on Google
