accidentally deleted a workspace file. is there a way i can recover it or even just reset the track?

I tried restarting the whole track and all of my old progress was there. wanting to just start fresh without having to manually change back all the code

You can restart the workspace.

Go to the Workspaces page and locate the one you are using. Click on the trashcan icon on the right side to delete the workspace, and confirm when you get the pop-up.

With the workspace deleted, you can go back to the course and "Launch Workspace" again. When it comes up, it should have all the files you started with in their initial states.

when I open my workspace I do not see any trashcan icon. clicking on the launch workspace button from the video screen i get a popup that says launch workspace or use a different workspace. would the different workspace do the same thing as the trashcan?

Not the workspace button pop-up, but the actual page. Click here to open that page :point_right: Workspaces.
You can also choose that word from the menu bar at the top of every page.

You should see any workspaces you created, with 3 icons to the right. The last icon is the trashcan. The most-recently used workspace is likely to be at the top of the list.
