Recover Deleted Files in Eclipse?

Is there a way to retrieve files that you may have deleted through Eclipse? The files do not show up in the trash can or in the recently opened file history.

Sorry if this doesn't belong here but I couldn't find a more appropriate category/audience for this question.

Search in your workspace using grep or Windows find command

Are there backup files of them?

There are no back ups locally on my machine of the files I was working on. I do have older version backups I'll have to use if I cannot recover the files.

You can use FreeUndelete tool to recover file http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/Utilities/Backup_and_Copy_Utilities/FreeUndelete_Download.html
I don't use Eclipse, I am using JBuilder. In JBuilder IDE, it always make backup file whenever that file is saved. So, you can use the backup version when you unintendedly delete file.
I've usually managed to recover them using the technique i mentioned
Are they still available on your disk?  If not then they are lost.
If they are then add/import them back into your project.
You can right click on the folder node and from the context menu, select "Restore from Local History...".
This brings a window from where you can select which file to recover (it lists even the deleted files)
