If you accidentally delete a file, all hope isn’t lost. However, assuming you can’t just drag it back out of the Windows Recycle Bin—especially true if you, like me, tend to default to the more permanent Shift + Delete instead of just “delete”—you’re going to have to roll up your sleeves and try a slightly more…Read more...
