So I just did a little oopsie and deleted a wrong directory with some files in it with the
rm command. The files that were deleted were hopefully not that important and I can easily grab a backup of them but I want to be prepared for the worst. What are some good data recovery applications for Linux?
Moral of the story: always be prepared for the worst and have MULTIPLE backups of your important files. I have been in many horrifying and depressing situations thanks to not taking backups seriously!
