    Create backup copies often, and hope you never need them.

    Getting back to the topic at hand; if indeed the directory has been replaced, then the files exist, just the entry point is lost. Reboot into recovery mode, run fsck, then check under the /lost+found directory.. are your irreplaceable pictures there?

    EDIT: I just tried to reproduce what OP did, and I have to agree with him; this behavior is not correct. He _should_ file a bug report. Though the wording of the dialog is very clear, in this case, replace should _not_ be the default choice. On my next reboot, I will try an fsck to see if the files can be recovered.

    A little too late for a Ctrl+Z at this point, I'm guessing...

    It happens to me in ubuntu and windows. I hate it. I'm typing something on msn, i press the space bar or enter key and just as i press it, something pops up and is gone before i can see what it was.
