I, very stupidly, did a shift-delete on some very important files on my /home partition and now I am trying to recover them.
I have been able to find them using r-linux, and it seems like they are still there and okay, however when I go to recover them it pops up with "Using the same drive as file destination is not recommended. Click Cancel to abort or Save to continue at your own risk"
I have a USB stick that is formatted as etx4 and i am trying to recover them to that, but i can't work out how to access it using the r-linux interface. I tried saving the files to
/media/<user>/<USB stick label> but it still pops up with the "using the same drive...." message.
I have also tried manually putting /dev/sdb1 as the path for the output folder for the files, but that still pops up the same message.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do to access the USB stick through r-linux? I think i might be able to recover the files okay using that, but I just dont know how to use the interface to access the USB drive. Or alternatively, should i just ignore the message and save it to
/media/<user>/<USB stick label>?
This folder contains all of the work I have done on my PhD for the last 3 weeks since my last backup and I am starting to get very worried!
