Today I was deleting files, and I had pictures on my free yola site. Since the pictures were alreadyon my site I thought if I deleted them from the file manager they would still be on the site. I was wrong!!!!!!! What do I do now? How can i get my files back!

Hello Gerald

Unfortunately, once something had been deleted we are not able to retrieve it. I'm sorry that I don't have better news.

If your site was published, the latest version will still be published on the Internet. I would suggest that you go to your published site and try to retrieve as much as you can. You can right-click your images and save them. Then upload them back into your file manager. You will need to re-add them to your page.

I hope you will be able to use this idea. If we had another alternative I would gladly offer it.

It really is wise to keep originals on your computer....I have folders for all my images on my site....If you prefer not to store images on your computer there are many free services that would allow you to store images online such as flickr
