directory copied to one of its own sub-directories (ext4)
 
Using Dolphin, I accidentally copied a directory containing most of my data into one of its own sub-directories. Hence the file system (ext4) has lost them. I do have backups so I have not lost that much but is there any way of restoring them?

yes, there should be a way: you can set that drive readonly and use testdisk to recover lost files. or use your backup
