This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

If you deleted it using rm -rf /path/to/your/folder then it's basically gone. If you deleted it via the GUI (if you even have that installed) then it may be in your recycling bin.

i delete it by (rm -fr *) remotely under linux, how can i restore it – danny-london Sep 23 '11 at 7:02
For all intents and purposes, it's gone. Because of the way linux filesystems are structured, file can't be recovered (someone correct me if I'm wrong) – H4Z3Y Sep 23 '11 at 7:06
