I used the following command to move my driver file from Downloads to tmp folder, however, after I ran this command the file disappeared:

mv ~/Downloads/amdgpu-pro-17.40-492261.tar.xz ~/tmp

Now the file is very large and I cannot download it again. Is there some way to get it back? Did I use a wrong command? Please help, this is my first question, Thank you. PS: I was following the online tutorial on AMD site for driver installation.

    Unless you already had a ~/tmp directory (not the same as the system's /tmp) then you actually renamed the file to ~/tmp i.e. a file called tmp in your home directory Apr 10, 2020 at 15:17
  • oh actually I got it, the file was moved to a subfolder in Downloads. Thank you.
