    Question Unable to Restore from Trash

    Yesterday when I opened my laptop the Delete key stuck. Unfortunately the focus was on the Nautilus window displaying my home directory, so in a matter of seconds the entire contents of my home directory was deleted. No problem, you say, just go to Trash and restore. I have been trying. But every time I request restore Nautilus hangs. There is an open issue regarding this, apparently Restore doesn't handle duplicate files, but I would really like to restore my laptop without having to wait for Nautilus to be fixed. Is there any other way to restore deleted files?

    Can you see the files in ".local/share/Trash" ?
