The myth computers provide a daily backup of your home directory and all of its subdirectories, that happens at some point overnight. If you accidentally delete a file that was in your directory the day before, you will likely find it backed up in that folder. To get to your .backup directory, type:

$ cd ~/.backup

You should not rely on this as a backup for your files, but it may come in handy if you accidentally lose your work.
