Exclamation deleted directory, only shows up in rubbish bin on r/o mount ?!?

Hey, I accidentally (accidental key-press) deleted a directory on an ext4 partition. I went to the trash-bin hoping to find it there, but it wasnt. I immediately mounted it as r/o the drive:

sudo mount -o remount,ro /dev/sda4
However after that, it shows up in my trash bin?

how do I recover the files ? I can open in in the trash bin, but I cant seem to figure out how to move it to a new location ?

I tried to cd to the directory, but it doesnt respond....

I figured it out, I need to use forward slash instead of backslash. Marking as solved.
