Over the past 3 days, I've created a number of java files, and let Idea add them to cvs as I went.
When I was ready to put them into CVS, I ran a CVS status which listed all the new files (which I do before commiting), and it was then that I realized that these new files are better placed in their own repository.
Since all of the files were marked as added, I selected CVS Rollback Create so that the Added files would not be marked as such for CVS. I would then have moved the files to the correct (different) location to perform an import into CVS.
The problem (and its a biggie) is that the Rollback Create command deletes all of the java files. Doh! and #$&)!#&$ this and #$&)!#&$ that!
Is there somewhere I can find them, or a cached copy from which I can recover? The undo command did nothing, saying "Files have changed", and of course the Windows Recycle bin is useless.
Prepared to be the slave of the person who knows how to recover my work...
