I have deleted a folder accidentally? How do I recover it?


Hi all,

While deleting some files, unconsciously, I have deleted a very important folder using shift+del. Can any one please tell me how can I recover it?

Thanks,
Srikanth

Restore the folder from your backup.

It can depend on the filesystem of the partition. If you have written anything at this point there probably not much chance of recovering. First thing that should be done on accident delete is unmount partition.
