    deleted my public_html folder

    I accidentally deleted this folder, trying to delete something else, clicked on the trash can and it was too late before I noticed.

    I have lost tons of work....I know I should have backed up my work...I hadnt got that far, what I was in the process of doing.

    PLEASE tell me they can retrieve this folder.
    It had my site, and all my files in it.

    Is this your own server or is this an account you have purchased thru a web host?

    If it is your own server and you haven't made any backups - well you're out of luck.

    If this is jsut an account you have purchased thru a web host - send them an email. If they do backups (which they should) then they may be nice enough to restore your account from the last backup they have.
