Where do deleted files reside?

I’m not hopeful, I realize that I shouldn’t have done this.
I deleted my live server files and archives from the webui. I’m attempting to use testdisk to recover but that’s put all the thousands of files into one giant pile. Does anyone know how the archive tarballs would be stored, I’m not seeing them?

If you deleted the files from the Status tab by checking all three options, then unfortunately, I believe they are gone for good. Unless you want to throw a bit of time and/or money to try and recover it, it may not be worth it.

That being said, you may try navigating in the CLI to the …/servers/world/backup or the import directories, you might find a prior version, if it was backed up, and not deleted with the steps I mentioned above.
