Luckily -- as in so many other areas of life -- the cure simply lies in proper prevention before bad things happen. And guess what, tools like our System Development Suite may be central to the answer! Stuart McClure,...

My best guess is that he deleted it by mistake, recognized what he had done, went into the recycle bin, but instead of restoring the files, tried to manually copy the files back to the stick...
