Deleted Program.cs

I was typing the code and compiled it. Compiling worked but when I ran the program it didn't work. I think it was because I had not saved the work. Anyway before figuring out I had not saved the work, I accidentally deleted Program.cs . How can I get it back, please?

Clearly, anything you had not saved cannot be recovered. But if you're talking about a program that was provided initially by the course, you can restart the workspace.

First, save (download) any work you have done that you want to keep. Then go to the Workspaces page and locate the one you are using. It will likely be the first listed. 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. Then upload any work you saved and continue with the course.
