## Disaster Recovery

Days like these inconspicuously start out just like any other day, except on days like these you accidentally manage to erase \$HOME and have no real backup to rely on … Maundy Thursday will forever be Black Thursday for me, from now on.

Best thing your can do, after cursing at yourself constantly for a couple of hours, is to:

1. Come up with a useful backup and restore strategy
2. Read up on undeletion tools for Ext4
3. Blog about it, naturally

BUT FIRST – QUICK – UNMOUNT OR POWER-OFF YOUR COMPUTER – PULL OUT THE BATTERY – AND STEP AWAY FROM THE COMPUTER! Must protect the partition from being accidentally written to – I completely fumbled this step, so take heed young people!
