jayMcD22183yI feel for ya... I once accidentally blew out my entire home directory with "rm -rf Downloads *" instead of "rm -rf Downloads/*"
Silvus1113yThe bad news is: you will eventually do this again :/ backup regularly
What was the full actual command? I like to learn from others mistakes.
alcamore1683y@Diactoros was trying out bedrock Linux, which allows you to use multiple package managers without them conflicting by sandboxing them... I think.
Installed a minimal Ubuntu, and wanted to delete it to install a different version.
rm -rf /bedrock/strata/*
I think either rm followed a symlink, or I had my Arch installation mounted in there as well without noticing. And suddenly it was hallway destroyed before I noticed.
Good times. Deleted that Ubuntu strata too though, so there's that.
