How to recover deleted test scripts.



Could someone please advise on how can i retrieve deleted test scripts. These test scripts are deleted from disk not removed (so they are not in the scripts folder). 

Is there a way i can retrieve them back?. 

There is a suggestion in Backups?. Where this backup is located?. 


Many Thanks,

    You can search for them on your hard drive but there is no backup function in TestComplete.

    Search for .bak files where your project is located, or check your Windows File History on the folder. If you can't find anything, then it's gone.


    If you're doing any form of development work, it's best to use a file system repository

      The only other chance is if you aren't working on a local computer, your IT department may have a backup that has your files.
