Re: restore after rm

Last nights backup!

Or can you reconstitute it if it is a system configuration file?

Re: restore after rm

Hi:

Sorry, Unix doesn't have the old "recycle bin" [unless you write your own mechanism]. Backups are worthless until you need them [as in now...].

Regards!

You may not be able to recover it. Here's a thread that might help.
