Accidentally deleted a picture...

Recommended Posts



I was painting today on something I've been drawing for a long time... and I did not save it. All of the sudden, I hit "Undo All" by accident while my screen freezes... then, I was clicking around and I apparently moved the pixels and now I am stuck. I can't redo my history, and I don't want to have to redo the WHOLE THING. I realize how important saving is...


Is it possible to restore it?

Win 7:  Navigate to the file using Windows Explorer.  Right click on the file and see if there is an option labelled Restore Previous Version

XP/Vista: I don't know.

If Paint.NET is still running, exit without saving.  That will leave the image in the state it was when you opened the current session.



Otherwise it looks like the original image is lost.  How old is your last backup?
