    A few issues:

    - Did you delete a file from gFTP's configuration? Or a file on a webserver that you were accessing with gFTP?

    If the former, it depends. If you deleted it via commandline, it is gone. If you deleted it via some sort of GUI, there may be a copy in the ~/.Trash folder or the ~/Desktop/Trash or something like that.

    If you deleted the file from a webserver, it is gone as well.

    When you use gFTP, you are executing commands on the webserver, By running the "del" or "rm" command, you are erasing the file.

    GUIs like KDE and Gnome often replace the "Delete" option in the right-click menu with something that actually just moves the file into a hidden Trash folder.
