  • What sort of mistake are you trying to recover from? If you accidentally deleted the project files then reverting to a recent backup is the best solution.

    The xap file contains just the compiled code and resources and not the original source, so you cannot trivially recover a project from it. If you rename it to a .zip file you can open it and see what is there. 

    You are using source control, right? :) It's said there are two types of developers: those who use source control and those who will wish they used source control.
