Local VCS recovery

I deleted by error the directory with all the sources of my Intellij project.
It's possible to recover them from the Local VCS, and if it's possible how?

thank you.

Go to Project View, select the root folder there (I hope it was not the same
as the source directory you have deleted) and invoke Local VCS | History.
Find a version before deletion of the sources and invoke "Rollback" on it.

I hate being a whiner, but Local VCS fails me every single day,
when it refuses to undo (Ctrl-Z) very simple changes, even in a single
class. All I get is a message that sounds like "cannot undo because some
files changed". Duh?! Am I alone to notice this problem?

That isn't local vcs you're talking about is it? I thought the undo
system and local vcs were completely separate; they certainly behave so.
Local VCS is "rollback" not "undo" :)

Well, I'm not a plumber, but I know for sure there is a leak, somewhere.

I can't see a difference between "undo" and "rollback".

Unfortunally, i have such problem too. Especialy then i working with XML.
The most bad think i saw, - then for Recursive Internal Error i have pasted
some garbage in my XML source file (at end of file, thankfully), then when i
kill recursive internal error by quick pressing Ctrl+Z, i have "cannot undo
because some files changed"... This is abnormal i guess...
I try to catch such errors to post it
