I accidentally made a backup of folder using "copy folder folder_backup" and got a file called folder_backup. It contains all the bits of the folder. And I accidentally deleted the folder. How do I transform file folder_backup back to the folder?

Not enough info present to answer this question, and it probably belongs on SuperUser, not StackOverflow. –  dbenham Jun 12 '13 at 17:01

@bw. No, user1982779 has created a file that is the concatenation of all the files that were in his folder folder (in alphabetical order). –  Scott Jun 12 '13 at 22:55
