Mvzes409320dOh dear. Didn't gparted notify you about the mounted partitions?
Reine88DS35319d@RantSomeWhere Backup, backup, mother*uckers. They'll never learn!. =)
brunofontes2005319dOnce I had to delete an old and unused backup. I created it while I was testing a backup program and it just replicated my structure under a folder.
I've tried to delete the folder, but for some reason I don't remember it were not working. So I opened the terminal and started `rm -rf .config` etc etc
At some point I noticed I was not inside the backup folder, but on my home dir. My heart probably stop working for 3 seconds. I was at home, talking to my daughter, playing, alt+tabbing back and fourth some windows and I ended up with the wrong terminal.
Luckily I have backups of all my important files, but I am pretty sure I lose some files on that day.
leosuncin196309dHappened to me once but with dd, I was making a USB bootable I got the ISO files in a external disk and connected the USB, I didn't check the USB device file then dd failed to copy at first block so goodbye to MBR. Lucky me I was able to recover MBR with testdisk so no file was lost but the HD only works on Linux on Windows I need to manually mount
