Recovering Deleted Data on Ubuntu Linux Server
Posted on 2014-07-19
Got an Ubuntu Linux 12.04.3 LTS server that is acting as a network file server using Samba.
While connected from a Windows machine using a mapped network drive, I accidentally deleted a bunch of files that shouldn't have been. Too many for me to know the exact file names.
Assuming there is not an easy solution, like going to a backup, what is the best way to go about trying to recover or "undelete" these files? I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to Linux file systems.
