Start again

I don't think you can, but then again, I'm no expert. I make it a habit save my progress i.e. file01, file02 file03 etc My way of extra protection just in case I do something silly.

Cheers
Paul

Default Poly Smooth

If you haven't closed the file you could always CNTL+Z to undo your delete history, or you could try to add another smooth node (apply- polygons-smooth- again) to your model and then go the the channel box and access the smooth node and change the divisions back to "0" instead of 4 or what ever it is set at.

good luck
