I was just trying to copy a top level folder down from the resource repository to my desktop. The first attempt at the drop did not appear to be successful(the folder did not appear on my desktop), so when I tried again, workbench hung up for a second, and then an error appeared on the screen. No big deal, except, the folder in our dev environment completely disappeared!
I'm checking my local workspace log, and there are several relevant entries.

Does anyone know what "externally deleted resource" means? I know what it implies, but who, or what deleted the files? Where are the resource repository files stored(DB or OS), and how do I get them back? This is weeks worth of dev stored in the folder by multiple developers.
We have DB and file system backups, but which one would I need to restore in this case?
The files from the repository are stored in the database.
I see the files listed in the TB_REP_RESOURCE table. It appears they've been logically deleted. How can I "restore" them?
If it's possible, I think the safest thing would be to restore the DB to a working state.
If not, you can check with support to see if they can help.
