Hi Luigi,
if you deleted the only copy of your private key, then it is gone.
You'll have to create a new one and ask your communication partners to send
their contents again to you, with the new key. (Make sure you make a backup this time.)

Regards,
Bernhard

Hi Luigi,

if you were using https://github.com/gpg4usb/gpg4usb, note that this software is not maintained anymore (last stable release 2016).

Your secrect key needs to be saved somewhere to be able to re-import it.
If you have not saved your secret key, there is no way to recover it (of course).

Where did you save or backup your secret key?
(I don't know where gpg4usb does this.)

Best Regards,
Bernhard
