OK, this one will definitely make some Linux gurus laugh at me.
I have accidentally removed a directory with some music files I’ve downloaded off emule recently. My /home partition is ext3, so I tried to search for undelete solutions. I have recovered files from NTFS before, so I thought it was possible.
Bad luck, it seems. This page says it can’t be done. They make it impossible for security and reliability reasons, if I got it right.
It’s a pain to leech 79MB+ of data off emule again, especially with my nearly-dial-up 64k :( I guess I’ll know better next time. Backup!! And look closely before hitting Del!
