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,

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

Hi,

If you have atleast 1 other process using an already deleted file, You can retrieve it using the /proc filesystem and lsof

Plz go through this detailed exp:

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