Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

We have updated a database/Apps on a Linux box, before upgrade, we have taken tar backup of database/Apps, it worked, but some how, the tar backup got removed from the filesystem, and we want to go back to previous state, and there are 2 options as john pointed out
1). Restore the filesystem to 20 days back without a backup
2). Get back tar backup somehow on filesystem
Its a TEST Server and some Project updated/testing was going on that server, and we don't have backup either on TAPE or Disk. if we couldn't recover this, developers have to work for next 3 months.
its ext3 filesystem, and tar was removed with (rm) some 20 days back.
Can you help suggest some options, if we can recover from this, or please suggest some options/guidelines so that atleast avoid this in future.
