Security Reminder
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

Hi @laxmi

Do you need help locating the Recycle Bin on your machine or getting the sites from your Recycle Bin back into Local?

In order to get the site or sites back into Local, you can either zip the files up and import them or move them over manually. More on these options here:

If you need further help finding your Recycle Bin and getting files out of there you might try searching online using your specific OS/OS version for tutorials.

Hi @laxmi -

Can you try to rename your file and see if that allows you to import?
