Hiya,

I am brand new to eclipse and i'm using it on a mac. I created a new 'makefile project from existing files'. I chose the desktop as my directory as I had a file there I wanted to add. I was just messing around with the different types of new project to see what happened. After realizing this wasn't what I wanted I then right clicked on 'dektop' in the navigator and clicked 'delete project'. I also ticked 'delete project contents on disk'. I thought this would just get rid of any files it had put into the workspace directory. However, it then went on to delete all the files from my desktop - a lot of files. How on earth can I get them back?

I have tried 'restore from local history' which tells me 'no deleted resources in local history for selected container'.

What can I do?

Thanks

When you selected "Delete project contents from disk (cannot be undone)"
you really did delete them from the disk and it really cannot be undone
without some type of OS-level (non-Eclipse) backup/restore facility.

As long as the deleted files are not overwritten, you still have a chance to retrieve them. Don't hope for free tools, you may not be successful. You have no choice, and finding the most reliable and affordable data recovery tool is the most effective way.
