Accidentally deleted plugin

I think I accidentally deleted the plugin. Tried to reinstall but says the destination file is still there, so it will not reinstall. How do I fix it - preferably without losing all of my data!?

Data should not be lost as it is all stored in the database and not affected by changes on the file system.

I suggest you don’t use the WordPress plugin updater but sFTP or maybe web FTP provided by your hoster. Download the files manually (, then upload them to the plugin directory.

you are beautiful - thank you!
