Update; Author replied with extensive response. The plugin, at the time of writing, has a few problems; It doesn't show progress, the restore-file process fails with a timeout error when then are too many images and it adds all image-sizes to the library (ie: filename-570×370.jpg) instead of only the original file. This makes this plugin really not usable for anyone trying to restore a lot of images. Code quality of this plugin is A+ and I'll try to update my review once these issues are ironed out.
