Image Deletion- "Well that was a smart move." Answered

Well that was smart. I thought for the first time, I would have a clean out of my image library. I apparently have never noticed before, that your image library is directly connected to your I'ble pictures. I assumed that after you had published an I'ble, that the images in it would be stored. I guess I was wrong... That really really, does not make me happy. I'm just hoping I have some of them saved on my computer, because that little effort just wiped at least 3 of my I'bles... Luckily I was getting a server error so I stopped deleting them after the first 70... I know it's my own fault, but I can't believe I have never had a conversation or heard about that before. I have no idea where to start now, I guess I should un-publish all the I'ble's.

. If that's the worst mistake you make in your life, you'll be doing better than most of us. I once wiped out several MB (back when a 30MB HDD was huge) of data in 100+ files at work by typing del *.* in the wrong directory. Took me two days to rebuild everything using a sector editor.

well if it wasn't for the server error I would have deleted over 250 images... All 16 of my I'bles.

Are you sure you want to delete this file? "OK" will delete this file and remove it from all the Instructables, Forum Topics, Comments, and any other places it appears. NOTE: YOU CANNOT UNDO THIS OPERATION!!!! BE VERY SURE. Yes, yes it does. I read it the first time as, Are you sure you want to delete this file? "OK" will delete this file and remove it . NOTE: YOU CANNOT UNDO THIS OPERATION!!!! BE VERY SURE. How smart am I. ok thats 1 un-published now, it's dead. Don't have back -up picks. Managed to save to two "Featured" ones with back-ups from my computer.

Perhaps Google it and see if it's cached? Or does Google caching store images?
