How to recover deleted projects in adobe flash builder 4.5 for PHP

Problem:I accidently deleted project in adobe flash builder 4.5 for PHP and in confirming dialogue box,i checked delete contents one(see figure).

I have wasted almost 6 hours and googled almost everything but couldn't find solution.



I have also used data recovery software like Get Data:Recover my deleted files.It found all my deleted files which was deleted by me pressing Shift+Del,but it didn't displayed files which i wanted(since they were deleted by Adobe flash builder).


Any help would be welcomed as that project was so important for me.

    Sorry for your loss.


    My Windows 7 has a recovery feature enabled by default.Right click on the parent folder and go to Properties -> Previous versions.


    Short of that, I would keep searching around for "how to recover deleted files."


    Maybe this?

    If you can get the bin-debug folder then you can run the binary through a decompiler, and at least get some form of your Actionscript code back, but you may be needing to redo your PHP files.


    By the way, this unfortunate accident has happened to me once as well. Now I have my Flash Builder configured to post changes to an SVN repository every time I do a project clean. Sometimes we learn the hard way. :\

    I have the exact same problem.  If anyone knows how/where/what Flash Builder does with the files I would greatly appreciate it

    I believe it just calls a delete operation from the OS.


    This was suggested on stack overflow,
