Personally, I know nothing about Flash Macromedia,
but I found the following item on the Net:
"If the .fla's are lying around somewhere, you will need to get your hands on a copy of Macromedia Flash to edit them. Then its just a case of making the changes you want, and exporting them as swf's, and building some html pages to load them."
I gather, from the above, that SWF files are constructed
using FLA files. So, even if you have deleted the SWF file
from your computer, the FLA file [whatever that is] must be around somewhere?
Then again, if you have the file uploaded to your
A/F webshell, why can't you simply view the file
from that location and then save it to your computer,
as you would any other file...?
Another thought: I'm surprised that Angelfire allows
the use of SWF files on their homepages, since that particular file format is subject to virus infection.
Read the following from the Symantech site:
"ACTS.LFM.926 is a virus that is capable of infecting Shockwave Flash (.swf) files. The virus uses the ActionScript scripting language (which is supported by Shockwave Flash) to create a DOS executable named V.COM in the same folder as the one from which the already infected Flash movie is being executed. This file is then executed by the virus, and it infects other Shockwave Flash files that are in the same folder."
