    Hi all,
    In Linux,if we delete a file using 'rm' is there any way to get it back without using any 3rd party tools?

    Thanks in advance,
    sharmila.

    I got the answer..
    I used function..
    create a dir Trash and move all the deleted files into it.
    del()
    {
    mv $1 ~/Trash/
    }

    Regards,
    sharmila.

    If you once delete it, you have no chance to get it back. You would need to make backups of that files.
