I lost a file! [message #1794182] Sun, 26 August 2018 21:36 Go to next message

I was working on a Java file in Eclipse when, for a reason I don't want to get into, I deleted the project and its disk location. It was a git repo I had cloned from github and manually added to Eclipse. Unfortunately, I forgot to commit and push the file I was working on, and by the time I had realized that, I had already created a fresh project with the same name using a new cloned folder. I tried undoing, but Eclipse threw an error about there already being a project with the same name (the one I had just created) and it is no longer in the undo queue.

Is there any way I can recover the file I lost?

(If it's any help, I still have the Eclipse session in question open)

Edit: Actually, I had to close it due to an "internal error"

No, when you deleted the project from disk you were warned the action could not be undone. :-(
