Recovering some files from rm -rf
A friend of me logged into a server machine that we have at work as root and by mistake he types rm -rf (the home folder of another user), he called me asking if there is any solution to recover the data, i only know PhotoRec wish i tried many times and it's awesome for recovering photos, but i don't know how to recover data let's say ( C codes and Java for this user).
My friend he's counting on me to recover some data , but i really don't know what to do for him since he's relation with the victim guy was always not good!
So let me know if you have any idea.

First remove his 'Root' rights for good.
Nobody should play with rm -rf *..
If such a person can become root he can really get into trouble..
I never did need this. (Since I do backup and watchout what I do )

I was thinking that photorec was capable of restoring files types other than just photos. At least that's what I thought I read on their website.
I've never used it so not really sure, though.oz

Well, i hope your are not advertising that product here.
Anyway i tried already few weeks ago that software and i have to say that photorec is much more powerful and recovered for me a lot AND a lot of data that the software that you've mentioned here didn't even see any trace of those data.
photorec is not only for photos, it recovers many varieties of files, free and opensource.
