Hello,
 
I'm a beginner in .net .
I have recently made a project on "online examination project" using .net . After I done designing and coding it, I build the project and run it.
 
It was working fine at that time. Even after some days, it was working fine.
 
Then one day I just changed my this project's location to another folder in the same drive by "cut-paste".
Now , I found that all the webforms of my project are missing.
There is .cs file of every page , but the webforms are missing. I don't know what to do. Its my first project and now its gone.
I really need help.
If anyone has a way of how to recover my original project then please tell me.

this is why you should always have back-up of all your projects secured in an external hard-drive synced with cloud and locked away in shock-proof vault with the key embedded in your skin. Anyway, can you search for "*.aspx" first in your solution folder and if unsuccessful then in your drive? If you find them, I would recommend creating a new solution and add all of them into it.

Not backup. Put under Revision Control System. These days, such project could be open-source (and should be, to trust it), extremely light-weight, non-intrusive, well supported and very reliable. Not using one for any kind of development (even for writing some documents) is ridiculous. --SA

@Sergey- Thanks for your reply, the matter is resolved. But I would like to know about this "Revision Control System". Please acknowledge me.

Sure, please see my answer. Ask some follow-up question is you want. --SA

Thanks, it helped me. The matter is resolved and I learned that now I should have a backup of all my files to avoid these types of happenings. Now I will save a copy of each files into my external hard drive. thanks

Sorry but AFAIK, you cannot get it back. It's gone. Re-write whatever you have lost.

Try to recover it using data recovery tool http://www.piriform.com/recuva[^]
Although the success rates are low for files deleted long time ago....

According to OP's information, it's not obvious that any files were lost. It looks like the project was non-movable; with some absolute paths or something like that. --SA
