Ok So I recently accidentally deleted files by switching the source and destination directory around in my command.
I specifically ran this code:
rsync -aphoge "ssh -l root" --delete /backup/staff kiska:/backup/staff
as you can see, I deleted all the files I wanted to back up because they got replaced by the empty directory which I was trying to back up to. Is there any way to recover the files which I deleted?? I spent around $1000 and had a professional recover all deleted files from the ext3 hard drive, however none of the files recovered were ones which I was trying to back up!!
any advice would be appreciated!!
