I made a serious mistake, typed a space before '*" accidently when using the "rm" comman - the entire directory got deleted - lost some really important files. - 6 months work!!
Please if anyone knows anyway to recover the files I'd be incredibly thankful.
I am running RedHat 7.2 - (ext3)
I looked through google and found "tct" (http://www.fish.com/security/tct or http://www.porcupine.org/forensics/tct.html) - but I tried this and while "unrm" works (but it only took 15 mins when its meant to take prob hour or so) the output file generated can't be opened. I keep getting I/O error.
Anyway so is there any other way anyone knows to recover deleted files.
