I'm looking for a little input on dealing with any
or worse yet,
mistakes. Do you have anything setup on your system, so that you can avoid any enormous disasters? I absolutely love Linux, but this is something that scares me. It's so easy, especially wiith tabbing, to accidentally remove a file. I'm a creature of habit, where I often just go through the routine, before taking the time to read through my commands. It's poor practice, I know, but I'm just looking for some advice from the gurus in LQ land.
P.S. Maybe even some tips on how to deal with a mistake that may have already happened as well.
P.P.S. "Don't be stupid, and think before you hit Enter" Does not count as a tip, although it is very good advice.
