I accidentally deleted something from my Moodle class. How do I retrieve it?

If you accidentally delete a module from your Moodle class, such as a File or Assignment, you can use the Recycle bin to retrieve that item and restore it to your course site.  The Recycle bin can be accessed by clicking on the Gear menu and selecting Recycle bin. 

Items deleted from the course will remain in the Recycle bin for 7 days.  After 7 days the items will be removed completely and can no longer be retrieved.

On the Recycle bin screen, any items deleted from the course in the past 7 days will be listed.  Please note that there may be a delay of several minutes between when an item is deleted and when it appears in the Recycle bin. To restore an item to the course, click on the arrow icon to the right of that item. 

After restoring an item, the item will no longer display in the Recycle bin and a message will appear indicating that the item has been restored to the course. On the course page, the item will appear at the bottom of the section that it was deleted from.  If this is not where the item was previously located, you can drag it back to its original location.
