I got an error and one of my html files disappeared, can I get it back?

I got some sort of error, (I think error 1?) while dragging the "articles.html" file into the "2017" folder, and now all that code has disappeared, is there no way to get it back?

Check the recycle bin. All files that would have been on the system will go there. Otherwise, download the package again and start again.

If it was code originally provided, you can reset your 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. 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.


if it was something you wrote, you can only get it back if you accidentally moved it somewhere unexpected and can find it. If you'd like help looking, you can make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here.

Same happen to me the article is in the folder but when i try opening says Error opening file folder not found, i close it and reopened workspace and there it is.
