Currently there is no nice way to do it;  there is an open bug report on
it which I hope will be closed (after a fix) soon.

What you can do is this:
find a file in the same dir as the deleted file, for example I'll call it 'foo'
    tla file-find foo
you will get a really long file name outputted, ending with 'foo'.

take that filename, replace the 'foo' with your filename and copy it to the
place where it should be.
Be sure to put backslases for all '=', '+' and other wierd characters you
find in the path.

Hope that helps.
