i was running a del /f/s/q filepath in cmd window
to delete a file the fast way

i clicked enter before i could type in the folder name so now it was deleting the entire folder and not the sub folder i had to put

i panicked and just closed the cmd window

Hi INternJ -
This may help you to recover most of the lost items, but I am not sure how it goes with CMD removal.
Accidentally deleted an important file? Lost something important when your computer crashed?
No problem! Recuva recovers many files deleted from your Windows computer, Recycle Bin, digital camera card, or MP3 player.
And it's free

Recuva is a good program but I must add to use with caution!
I dont really know either if it can recover anything deleted from the command prompt.
Frankly I doubt it can.

Exactly what were you trying to do and why?
Why couldnt you just clict the file name and hit delete?
In the beginning there was the command line.
