Accidentally deleted index.html, d'oh!

I relaunched the workspace and all my previous work was, of course, gone and the new index.html page was blank. I guess I'm just going to redo everything up to this point (at the point of adding the CSS). In case this happens again, is there any way to save what we are working on, or, alternatively, is there any way to "undo" any accidental mishaps like that? Thanks! :)

I don't think there is a way, but it's good practice to do it again and get an understanding of the code. a good tip is to make it a habit to press CTRL + S once in a while, while working on your code so you won't lose it again :)

Hi Christina. Welcome to Treehouse.

If you delete the entire Workspace (Find it from the workspace link in the left nav bar (with the symbol <>). Once it's deleted, go back to the video and relaunch the workspace associated with the video. All the files and code up to that video should be there again.

If you don't delete the old workspace and launch the workspace from the video, it will launch the one you had from before.

Hope that helps. :)
