Restore deleted file in Flex Builder

I don’t know how many of you have experienced this issue but it’s a reeeeeally nasty one.

I have been working for the whole day on a class just to find it deleted at the end of the day after I hit CTRL+Z+something else (still a mistery).

I found the solution here:

The thing is to restore it from editor’s local history – right click the directory you know the file was and select “Restore from local history”.

What a relief!

Funny thing is that the deleted file couldn’t be found even by recovery tools.
