I accidentally deleted all my music files from Rhythmbox. And I want to restore it from the trash. But when I open the Trash in Nautilus, I got error "Aborted (core dumped)" in terminal. Why is it?

I've tried to use trash-cli, but it can only restore file one by one, and I've about 1300 files to restore. Any other idea to restore them?

Try to reinstall nautilus and then open the trash again,

sudo apt-get install --reinstall nautilus


you can install PCMan File Manager to open trash.It was more effective than thunar and nautilus.

  • Thanks for your quick response. I solve it using pcmanfm.

  • I can't, because I don't have enough reputation.

  • I install pcmanfm, open Trash from pcmanfm, then restore all my files. I think nautilus can't open Trash with too many files inside (CMIIW).
