I am a professional space engineer, with the heart of a physicist.

I am also a Linux loving, academic, pragmatic, hopelessly idealistic, anti-bureaucratic baboon, and proud father of two little baboons (although they could be chimps, it's too early to tell).

If you think I did something awesome, consider buying me a coffee:

comment Version control system for projects involving mixed content
Feels like a workaround, rather than a real solution...Often we put Word files on a shared network drive and edit directly off of that drive. MS Word locks the file for editing, warning other users about it. Same mechanism, simpler implementation, but has the is the drawback that it's Word-only, and documents are no longer in the repository. I'll look into this. Sadly git is not an option, as we are tied directly to the repositories our mothership uses :)

@Raystafarian: OK, then for the moment I'll cross-post the question on both sites, and let both communities decide where it fits best.

@Raystafarian: Do you know of a stack site where such questions are allowed? I didn't ask this question on Stack Overflow for exactly this reason...I'm asking because I'm not sure that it can be reworked, because the purpose of the question is indeed to get a recommendation for a tool/method/...

comment How to get back the deleted folder and its content on a linux server?
That depends -- do you run your red hat off a solid state drive? Harddisk? What file system do you use? The success rate of recovering files is generally very low, even more so for dirs...Expect only parts to be recovered, at best.
