I deleted some sub-categories because I was trying to reorganize my checkbook. Today, my accounts were way out of balance. After a major freak out, I realized that when I deleted the categories, it deleted any transaction in that category. Is there any way to go back and restore that???

Deleting a category does not delete any transactions associated with it. It will only set those transactions to "No Category"

Did you delete any accounts or transactions?

That's what I figured would happen with categories, hence deleting them.
I did not delete accounts or transactions, i was only in the category organization screen.
However, I discovered the difference and was able to create a transaction to put everything back in order.
The amounts off were between checking and savings.
All is well!
