    Every time you exit traktor, a backup collection is created. In your case all you need to do is import the .nml file from the day before you deleted that playlist. As long as it wasn't the actual tracks you deleted, it shouldn't be a problem. So find where your traktor folder is in documents (windows), locate the backup folder and you should be fine.

    its the file that contains all the information on your collection ... tracks, playlists, stuff like that. If you can find the backup folder each .nml file is dated so you should be able to find it. Just remember if you re-import a collection you will be "rolling back" your collection so any new playlists you have made since then will not be there.

    No the grids and cues will still be there, that info is stored in the track file itself.

    Right you need to right click on the collection folder and import your nml file.

    You should make a copy of the whole folder any time your going to make changes. Especially drastic ones.
