I develop on Windows Vista and was connected to my server using Ubuntu dapper.

I was trying to delete a folder on the Ubuntu side but I inadvertadently deleted both the folder on the Vista and Ubuntu side.

It's totally my fault and I am hoping someone has mercy on me and offers some advice on what to do.

What is the best way on either the Vista or Ubuntu side to handle this?

Thank you in advance for any help.

Best,

John

I suppose that on Vista you will find the folder in Recycle bin.

I was trying to fix my iPhone Youtube problem and accidently deleted all files in this folder:

/var/root/Library/Lockdown/pair_records

How to restore them? BTW...they are NOT in Windows Recycle Bin. Is there a WinSCP Recycle Bin?

Using WinSCP Version 4.0.6 (Build 358)
Win XP ...Transfer protocol SCP...Interface style Norton commander

I doubt that files deleted via SCP are moved automatically to anything like recycle bin on iPhone. WinSCP have recycle bin, but it is off by default.

No, sorry. You should better ask on some forum related to iPhone.

Well if you deleted it seems to be it will be impossible to restore. And "NO" it will not go to the recycle bin, it is the same with deleting stuff in your flash drive. Sorry to hear about it though Sad
