[EP-tech] Reinstating deleted file

I haven?t managed to find a solution to this so I?m hoping someone has some experience in this area.

I have a situation something like this:

  *   Staff member creates empty eprint 29788
  *   Staff member uploads the first version, my_file_20190404.pdf, as supplied by academic. URL is /29788/1/my_file_20190404.pdf
  *   Staff member uploads revised version, my_file_20190510.pdf, as supplied by academic. URL is /29788/7/my_file_20190510.pdf
  *   Staff member removes first version, my_file_20190404
  *   Academic asks for the first version to be re-instated as it had been hot linked to
  *   Staff member uploads a copy of my_file_20190510.pdf as my_file_20190404.pdf. URL is /29788/13/my_file_20190404.pdf

This matches the expectations set out in the documentation where each upload was recorded separately as a file but I can?t find anything covering ?undeletes'

Can I re create file 01 and add it back to eprints, using means fair or foul?
We?re using IRStats2 for tracking access so a solution would need to work with that - otherwise I'll simply tell the staff member in question we can?t fix the deletion.
