I have accidentally deleted a big folder from my computer.

I have a backup of this folder in an external hard drive but it is going to be super slow to transfer it back to my computer.

I can't restore this folder because it occupies lot of space in the trash and then there is no space for the restore process.

Any hint on how to solve that?

    The trash is usually stored in /home/$USER/.local/share/Trash so I guess you could just poke around in there and mv what you need back out? – SHawarden Jun 20 at 7:35
  • @SHawarden Supersimple and perfectly working solution. Sometimes the answer is easier than it seems. If you want to put it as an answer? – Pablo_Lat Jun 20 at 7:40
