Restore accidently deleted Favorite lists?

Hi,

I accidently deleted several Favorite lists in PhpStorm side panel with Backspace button (which should never delete Favore lists without confirmation btw.) and I'm looking for a way to restore those. Some Favorite lists had dozens of files tied to a signle Tasks and i dont even know which were selected/deleted when i hit Backspace button accidentally.

Edit/Redo menu item does not work for Favorite list operations.

I learned, that in PhpStorm 10.X favorite lists are stored in workspace.xml, but that file is not part of project so there is not local history.

Is there a way to restore deleted favorite lists if there is no other external backup of .idea folder?

As discussed in a support request, favorites can't be restored unfortunately.

Since you don't have a backup, you an just apply a third-party tool to recover your lost lists, how about using the Bitwar Data Recovery> I have used it before, I think it works well in recovering data, so maybe you can also have a try. Good luck!
