This is a question regarding Xubuntu 14.04.
Very long story short, I had to use the program recoverjpeg to restore some photos that I forgot to back up after a fresh install. This resulted in 850k files getting placed into my home folder, and now it will not load. When I go to home/[username] it just spins, even after a reboot and just says "loading folder content." It has been hours. Should I just wait or is there another folder app I can load to make these files accessible? They are very important image files so I cannot risk losing them. This also means that I can't load anything in the home folder (Documents, downloads, etc) in the GUI OR the terminal.
Any advice is appreciated. Not sure what to do at this point. The files are not mine and if I can't recover them I might die. Thanks.
