Hello.
I have mistakenly deleted all the files before tagging them and they have disappeared from my computer.
Can I get them back?
Thank you very much

What about your backup?

How did you delete the files?

Thanks for answering.
They have been deleted from the folders and do not appear in the trash or anywhere.

Then I would say: hard luck. Without a backup, you have hardly any chance to get them back.

By the way: where do you see MP3tag's role in something that is solely the task of the OS and its maintainance of the file system?

The only chance to rescue a lot of them ist to use a data-rescue-software like Photorec. This only works if the files were on a classic hard-drive and not on a SSD. And you should not start your computer or do some work on it before you have tried to rescue your files. Every writing on the harddisk will probaly overwrite your deleted files.
