My boss wanted me to move the project from git to vs which normally wouldn’t be a problem since I’ve done this successfully a few times with the following process:
- Delete github repository (its public and code is actually proprietary)
- Copy local files to an unassociated location (usually a folder in C:\temp)
- Map a new repo in Visual Studio Team Explorer
- Copy files from temp location to Visual Studio mapped repo
I don’t know what happened today, if I wasn’t focusing on what I was doing or something but instead of copying the local files to the appropriate unassociated location on my drive after deleting the github repo, I appear to have permanently deleted everything.
I started working on the data model for the project in October 2017. Boss is NOT happy and neither am I.
I’ve sent an email to email@example.com asking if they can recover my repo… If they can, I can just clone it back onto my local drive.
Is there more that I can do or some way I can recover this on my own?
