I just woke up, and was checking out some mp3s that got downloaded last night. There were some that had the filename format of ## song title.mp3
and others that had the filename format of ##-artist-song_title.mp3
(no spaces). So I wanted to move the ones with spaces to a separate directory. But I wasn't paying attention and issued the following command:
mv ./* *.mp3 albums/magnum_force
and I completely forgot to put an escape character to signify that I wanted an actual space between the asterisks. Now I can't find any of the mp3s that were in the directory, and a sub-directory is gone as well. Is there any way to recover these? Or are they gone for good?
The fs is ext3 (if that has any significance).
