    Recovering deleted files

    HI, I have Ubuntu 12.04. I accidentally deleted some files by supra+shift. Can someone tell me how to recover them? Thanks

    Re: Recovering deleted files

    If "supra shift" means "shift delete" then you removed the file. There are utilities that allow at least partial recovery in cases like these. The less you use your machine before trying the utility, the greater the probability of success. Delete without the shift would have the same effect. Have a look at Scalpel.

    In working with *nix...There be dragons. Newcomers: I recommend reading Linux is Not Windows (http://linux.oneandoneis2.org/LNW.htm) and The Linux Command Line (http://www.linuxcommand.org/tlcl.php) before beginning your quest for a better OS.

    You can recover deleted files with data recovery software, see this solution: recover deleted files on computer
