Recover a student's EduTeam project

Hello Everyone,
A student of mine was experimenting with GitHub and accidentally overwrote their entire project with a blank repo. Is there a way to go back into the history of a project (not file) to restore to a previous version?

If not, does anyone know of a way to recover old versions of files in a eduTeam project if you can’t find the files in the file window and they aren’t in a Github repo?

Thanks for any help you can offer.
Mr. Benrud

Hey @ToddBenrud,

Normally replit saves deleted files, if the student types the deleted file name + extension, on that repl he might be able to recover his code!


Thank you @hugoondev! That resolved most of the issues. The .replit file didn’t recover, but we were able to send the recovered files to GitHub, then delete the project, restart it, and update the files.
