Restore Deleted PS3 Game File

[ Edited ]

I accidently deleted my main PS3 game file that has years of game saves on it.  Does anyone know how to recover or restore it?  I can't believe I did that!!!

no, it's completely gone.

When you delete a user, it wipes out ALL the settings and saves attached to that user.

So sadly, it's all gone.
Miss me? Come say hi over at my new programming project page, Retro-Pixel Castles.
Hopefully coming to Steam in 2015!

Unbelievable!!  I can't believe they didn't create a recycle bin of some kind.  Thanks for the feedback, though.

I'll definitely save my files under two names and to an external source from now on.  I had everything from Call of Duty 4 to NCAA rivalry game trophies that took forever to acquire.  Aaaah!!

if its just the account that got erased and not the save files,, then just create a new user called the old name,,then when you go to register it on the psn clic the "use existing account" feature, put in your email and password, and your account should be back

What if i have alreaady made an account with the same name as the old one, but i haven't restored my old one. if i delete it, will i be restoring that one? or will i be given the option of selecting another one. this file has a different e mail set to it. ive tried making a new account (before i read this) with a totally different name, but with the same E mail set to it, it came up all the trophies ive acquired, and showed all the games ive playued before on that account. but when i went to see my saves, they no longer existed. so i popped in Killzone2 to check my online saves, didnt exist. Please help
