    I had a wordpress domain in my account. I thought I had copied files to laptop then I deleted wordpress installation. I have then looked for files on laptop and realised the files are not on my laptop,
    Is there any way files can be retrieved from my account anywhere, like file manager or anywhere else.? I can see these items below in softaculous backup but don't know what to do to get hold of copies of files that were in wordpress before I deleted it.
    [​IMG] mostravelclub.com
    [​IMG] Delete this folder and all files under it.
    [​IMG] Change Permissions
    [​IMG] Rename Folder
    [​IMG] Copy This Folder
    [​IMG] Move This Folder

    Any help would be mostly appreciated.

    Hi, sounds like a question for the people at Softaculous.
    Old installs either go to the (retrievable) trash can, or deleted permanently.

    Using Core-FTP on a XP-Window PC, I can see .trash folder in the root.

    The (notice the dot) .trash folder may hold the old wordpress.

    .trash won't show in x10Host cPanel file manager (it's Linux based)

    There's also a visible /tmp folder in the root directory to check as well.

    Good luck.

    Another idea, if your site has been online for a long time, it may have been partly or wholly saved by a google crawl. Google search the url your pics were on and look for the google cache option.

    Archive.org might have saved copies as well.

    No worries. Softaculous is a free third party app, thus they would know for sure where things go when uninstalls happen.

    I'm just a free host forum member here as well...so don't take my info as gospel ;)
