The folder is massive (390GB) and contains many different files. The file system is ext4
I was about to copy this file to another hard drive using
gksudo nautilus so I didnt have do a massive
chmod operation on the destination hard drive, but then I accidentally hit move to trash, which in
gksudo nautilus means permanent deletion. I checked the trash but it's not even an operation...
I have seen tools like testdisk and other recovery tools but none that can recover and whole folder because its made up of different files.
I don't think that this would work but if I deleted the partition could I just recover the whole partition at once?
Or would this be wrong because i have already deleted the partition's content? This is my first job in Linux IT.
I don't have a backup... I was trying to make one because the old backup drive died :(
