I have drop a load of files on to my external hard drive, into a folder I have created and named. I pressed cmd-Z by mistake and is took all the files out the folder as well as taking it back to been a new folder/unnaled folder.

Does any know how I can get those files back?

I have tried the undo button ect...

Thanks in advance.

Where are the files now?
Are they "back where they started from"?

If you can't see them, can you search for them?
If you find one "by searching", you may be able to find the rest.
