A colleague of mine accidentally deleted /usr/* data by running:
rm -rf /usr/*. And it's now a big issue. We had a lot of good data on that machine. Most of the commands are not working as a result.
Is there anyway I can recover the machine? I'm not really an expert in data-recovery.
Please help me point to a solution/procedure. Some information regarding that machine follows. Do let me know if more information is required.
