hi - bit of a newbie with Eclipse - so be gentle.

I've joined a project mid-way and yesterday we deployed a whole bunch of new features/code to our system.

All well and good, however, a little accident happened, I accidentally selected the Restart option from the File menu.

The system where the code is deployed is fine, however, the Eclipse system is back to where it started 2 days ago. I tried the recovery point, however, that appears to be in mid-July and using that woudl mean the loss of even more fetaures.

There must be an easy way of getting back my changes?

thanks in advance (going frantic).

Welcome! I hope we can help.

So, had you somehow not saved the edits made in Eclipse and so they're
not in the filesystem? The project isn't committed to Subversion or
another version-control system? This seems pretty unlikely to me. What
is this "recovery point"? Windows system recovery? File system is
missing your files or edits? If the latter, there's precious little
Eclipse will do to help.

Maybe you could add some more detail to your explanation.

Thanks for replyingg...here's an answer to your question(s).

changes are made to a General project, we then employ a plug-in to Eclipse to save the data model - this is then followed by an option to"package" the data model. This produces a delta of the data model, by producing an xml file.

A secondary tool then uses the xml file to upload the updates. The biggest issue is that the time between two changes made was less than 24 hours and thus there was no backup of those specific changes.
