How to recover `rm -r` deleted folder
I have been working on some sites on my droplet, I went to delete a folder in the apps root and I accidentally deleted the entire apps root using
rm -r (with
f or a wildcard idr)
rm is dangerous command, I know I have to enable backups, but is there anyway I can recover all the files from the cloud? I went to use
photorec but it tells me no hard disk found, meaning that’s cloud I assume.
I also have a backup archive but the sad thing is I had it stuck at 99% and cancelled, now I can tell it is corrupted archive and fixing it gives me only 2 folders while it is for the whole apps root.
