History of the Oracle SQL Developer

I have been using the Oracle SQL Developer for about a year. I have a scripts I wrote and used two months ago. I have lost them and I had cleared the history on my machine. I would want to have them back but have failed.

I have contacted the data administrative team and they say they don't know if they can retrieve them

I am requesting for assistance on how I can advise them to retrieve the scripts.

I some times use PLSQL but cannot find the history facility

Thank you

On my version 11.5, history is set under the ribbon Tools | Preferences | Environment, and your actual statements are likely under c:\users\you\AppData\Roaming\SQL*Developer -- your actual results will vary by OS version.

To address your recovery question, my best guess is that you don't keep a backup.  And, you removed the files from your file store / directory.  Short of getting someone to do a sector-level search on the hard drive, I don't have a happy solution to offer.   Regrets.

I honestly do not know, my opinion is, however, yes.  That said, please copy the folder first as a backup, then delete the copy later if you don't need it.
