As has already been said, it's extremely difficult to recover an rmed directory. If you don't have backups, and the data is _very_ importation, immediately shut down the OS and turn off the system to avoid overwriting anything. It's possible that there's still enough data on the disk to reconstruct everything, but any time you write to the disk you could be destroying it. >From there, the road to recovery is difficult and/or expensive. There are folks out there with the knowledge to recover a deleted directory, and there are some HOWTOs floating around the 'net, but it's an involved and time-consuming process. -- Bill Moran Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
