Re: Recover deleted folders and their contents
Yeah, I'd go with testdisk as well. But be warned, it's hard, if not impossible, to completely recover files from an ext4 filesystem. Once I accidentally deleted everything in /home and tried using testdisk/photorec to recover the files... I got a few files, but no filenames, directories, etc. Just randomly named files and corrupt files. So I wouldn't get my hopes up on recovering everything back to the way it was.
The whole thing is so patently infantile, so foreign to reality, that to anyone with a friendly attitude to humanity it is painful to think that the great majority of mortals will never be able to rise above this view of life.
