[command] How to recover the deleted files using "rm -R" command in linux server?

I have unfortunately deleted some important files and folders using 'rm -R ' command in Linux server.

Is there any way to recover?

This question is related to command undo rm

The answer is

since answers are disappointing I would like suggest a way in which I got deleted stuff back.

I use an ide to code and accidently I used rm -rf from terminal to remove complete folder. Thanks to ide I recoved it back by reverting the change from ide's local history.

(my ide is intelliJ but all ide's support history backup)

Not possible with standard unix commands. You might have luck with a file recovery utility. Also, be aware, using rm changes the table of contents to mark those blocks as available to be overwritten, so simply using your computer right now risks those blocks being overwritten permanently. If it's critical data, you should turn off the computer before the file sectors gets overwritten. Good luck!

Short answer: You can't. rm removes files blindly, with no concept of 'trash'.

Some Unix and Linux systems try to limit its destructive ability by aliasing it to rm -i by default, but not all do.

Long answer: Depending on your filesystem, disk activity, and how long ago the deletion occured, you may be able to recover some or all of what you deleted. If you're using an EXT3 or EXT4 formatted drive, you can check out extundelete.

In the future, use rm with caution. Either create a del alias that provides interactivity, or use a file manager.
