I mistakenly deleted the Podcast folder/file from my Zip along with all the podcasts contained therein. Is there a way to recover/restore the files? I had the Zip connected to my PC at the time. I haven’t used the Zip since.
You might try a file recovery utility–that could help recover the files. Recuva is Internet freeware that is well-regarded, and seemingly also works with memory cards–you might try that. http://www.piriform.com/recuva
(And, good move in not using the player since!)
Can you not simply re-download the podcasts? Might be easier and just as quick rather than trying to recover them.
