I have my vault mount to
~/.files. While trying to delete
~/.fonts, I accidentally deleted
~/.files. I stopped the process ASAP, and check on my Nextcloud (the vault is hosted on Nextcloud).
My Nextcloud trashbin has about ~1000 folders all which were deleted then, but since Nextcloud is super buggy it can’t handle restoring all of them at once (also, my instance is slow, and the trashbin has loads of other files I don’t want to restore so I’d have to manually select all the items I’d want to restore, which would take forever).
The only thing I can think of doing is manually clicking restore on each file/folder, syncing to my Nextcloud again, re-downloading the encrypted files that were deleted, and then seeing if Cryptomator will open the vault and show me all the files.
Is there any point is me doing that, or does Cryptomator not work in this way? If not, I’ll just have to accept that all those files are lost forever, I suppose. Which isn’t catastrophic, I have backups of the most important notes, but I’d hope it wasn’t the case.
