If you previously committed the file to git, then yes, you certainly can.

  • If it had been committed and pushed, you can browse to find it on GitHub and redownload it from there.
  • If the file had only been committed locally and not pushed, I think git restore your_file_name should do the trick, to bring back the most recently committed version of that file.

However, even if you didn't commit it to git, there's a decent chance you can recover it using Eclipse's "Local History". See: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/5451175/is-it-possible-to-get-the-deleted-file-from-eclipse-workspace

Hope that helps!

Thank you for the insight, this post helped me restore a file that I accidentally deleted.

I think you can restore it as long as you didn't click on the checkbox that says "Permanently delete from computer" when you deleted it.
