I assume the deleted folder was too big to go in the Recycle bin? Have you looked there? If not, then don't you have backups stored somewhere else?

What is Markdown?
Markdown lets you add more formatting to your post. Simply type in your post and it will display as written.
If you wish to add bold or italic characters, add a hyperlink to another website, a heading or a horizontal line, simply use the relevent icons above the text input field.
A preview of your post will appear in the grey box below. If you make a change and you're not happy, simply press the back arrow icon to undo.
