Short answer is no.

You MIGHT be able to recover deleted content on a hard drive though. See viewtopic.php?f=147&t=179010

It's not possible to revert an exported project back to a .capx for obvious (anti-piracy) reasons.

If you simply deleted the file/folder, then a free undelete program, such as Recuva may be able to scan for the deleted files and recover them.

The following article includes a list of tools and also a guide on how to recover deleted files:

If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

It depends on how valuable your data was and much you want to spend to get it back. The best chance you would have of retrieving your data would be to take your hard drive to a professional recovery service, explain to them the exact steps you did to delete your partitions and pay the professionals to retrieve your data. you could try using Pandora Recovery

And this is why you have to keep backups. If you really need the date back you can take your hard disk to the places where they sell PC's, they usually have a repair service that can bring back your deleted files.
Like my work? Fallow me on social media, and see my games on the arcade.

1/ .... looks like you misplaced it, unless you use SHIFT + DEL (as i do), else those recovery apps would have found something.

2/ take a look in to folder C:\Users\XXXXX\AppData\Local\Temp\ ..... where XXXXX stands for you username. Look in there for folders that start with 'cap'. If you recently exported it, i could be still in there.
