View Full Version : [all variants] tried to delete smb mount icon... deletes share contents

Hi all,

I just did a bad thing :(

I mounted a Windows machine, via samba. This placed an icon on my desktop, which I didnt want (since I access it via a different method).

Without thinking I highlighted the icon and hit delete to remove it from my desktop, whereupon a progress bar appears as it proceeds to delete files from the actual Windows machine. Luckily I managed to cancel it after a short while.

The dialog claimed it was putting them into my local deleted items, but theres nothing there. Likewise theres nothing on the Windows machine (in the trash can i mean)

Is there any way I can find out what was affected by this? Is it possible it was just calculating what files it needed to delete, but didnt actually delete anything?
