Accidentally deleted Android layout file

Questions:

I accidentally deleted a layout file from my Android project. Is there any way I can get it back? I haven’t touched since it was done. And I don’t have copies of the file else where.

How to&Answers:

If you have the apk in your bin folder, you’re lucky: use apktool and get your decompiled xml files back.
And, for the future, always make backups, as keyboardsurfer pointed out.

Answer:

Right click on your Project, hover on Local History and select Show History.
See changes and try to revert.

Answer:

Simple answer will be “no”. You can not recover a file which is deleted by eclipse.
