Is there any way to ascertain the *name* of a previously deleted folder?

    Hello and thanks to anyone who cares to read my question!

    So I had a password that I stored as a filename on a folder (...) so I could easily look it up/remember it. By accident I managed to delete this folder (...)

    Im not sure exactly when it happened but it could be a while since it happened - like maybe a month, for example.

    So is there some way to ascertain this folder name again now..? Somewhere you can look up changes to directory trees? A log of deleted files/folders? Any ideas? Anything?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    PS: Im running OSX 10.9.5, but I sort of guessed any possible solution to this wouldn't be "version-specific"

    I forgot to add that the folder name is "username password"... and I remember the username... So I would recognize it/it is searchable. :)

    This folder must have been inside another folder.
    Find that folder in your backup and then restore the one you accidentally deleted.
