Blank/empty files on creating new project from existing files


We used the Web server is installed locally, source files are located under its document root. option to create a new project from existing files. Now they all show a 0Kb size and have nothing in them. Is there any way to get them back?

Yes, we realise now we should not have picked that option.

Hi Stephen,

We don't have any reports about similar behavior and I can't reproduce this issue - creating project from existing files in the described way should be totally fine.

Are your hard disk and file system healthy? Did you check them for errors? Can you reproduce this issue again with some other project?

As for current project files, you can try to check the local history in PhpStorm: <>.

Hi Vladimir,

No, there's nothing in local history. We've done this a few times before, so frankly it's a surprise. At this stage we'll assume the files are gone, and it was a freak occurrence that can't be reproduced.

I'll double-check the disk and file system, just in case.
