Deleted a file by accident? No problem. MindTouch archives deleted files and lets you restore them individually. With the restore functionality to come to your rescue, you can rest assured that you won't lose any of your important content, even if you make a mistake or change your mind. The deleted files archive displays the file name, its original location, the date of deletion, and who deleted the file. This article explains how to restore a deleted file once it is deleted. 

A single MindTouch site can store up to 5,000 attachments.
