I see you are using windows 8.1, have you tried checking the previous version tab in de properties of your project folder? (I am talking about shadow copies here)
I have configured my PC to make at least 3 shadowcopies per day of all my folders. ( and a shadow copy only takes 1 or 2 seconds to complete )

It is a huge lifesaver.. especially in situations like yours.

edit--
if nothing turns up doesn't it isn't there.

go to command prompt (administrative) and use the following command

vssadmin list shadows /for=<driveletter>, ex: vssadmin list shadows /for=c:

A typical result looks like this.
Code:
vssadmin 1.1 - Volume Shadow Copy Service administrative command-line tool

look at "Creation Time" and "Shadow Copy Volume"

to "mount" a shadow copy you can use the MKLINK command.
for example:

MKLINK /D c:\shadowcopy11 \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy11

and if your files are at: c:\users\user\documents\projects\nes for example. you can go to the shadowcopy variant using
CD c:\shadowcopy11\users\user\documents\projects\nes

you cannot go to C:\ShadowCopy11 directly.

I hope this helps.
