Undoing Repository Item Delete

Post by amunyaneza » Thu Nov 30, 2017 5:14 pm

How do I retrieve repository items that have been deleted if I have already saved the project and undo is unavailable?

I think the only solution is to get the last version before deletion from version control system you are using. I hope you are using one, right? If not, then you have just learned an hard, but important lesson. You should NEVER develop a test automation (any program) without version control system. And you should use it on a regular basis, not just once in a while!
