Restoring deleted files

I just deleted a whole directory of photos by accident. I was using the file manager.

Long story, which I’m happy to share but it boils down to ill advised multi-tasking.

What I want to know is whether there’s any way to restore them?

I did just find my “deleted files” which might be what I need since it apparently goes back 8 years.

What do you mean by “using the file manager” ?

If you were using the WebUI or the file manager on your PC, connected via WebDAV or via the Nextcloud Clinet, the files should be in the trash bin of Nextcloud.

If you deleted the files directly on the filessystem of your server, you’re out of luck. Then your only chance to get them back is some kind of disk-recovery tool.
