I've accidentally deleted the file index.html on the workspace, is there a way to get that back?

I am in the workspace writing my own html page and I can't figure out why it won't preview, and I realized that I've accidentally deleted the original file with the webpage (index.html). Please tell me I'm not the only one to ever do something this stupid and is there a way to get it back? Thanks

Hi Lauren Hicks

Nope, you're not the first. But, sadly, there is no way to get back what you deleted. You can delete the actual workspace associated with the video, from the Workspaces list, and then go back to the video and re-launch it.
This will bring back all the original starter files, but will not include any code you have added from when you started the first workspace, sorry. :(

Hope this helps a bit. On the upside, redoing it will only help you retain the information even better. :)
