add insult to injury, your secondary drives are all mounted.

yikes
Were there backups?


one was on one of the secondary drives i wiped out. the other was on my external, but i had temporarily repurposed it. luckily, those secondary drives were still ntfs, so I was able to use ntfsundelete. what's taken an obnoxious amount of time is sifting through all the shit and moving it around.

a few months ago, I made a full transition to *nix at home (vs using it at work or VM's, etc) and it's been an 'interesting' experience. I have some complaints, but in comparison to how disgusted I had become towards windows, i couldn't be happier.

You must have been root to delete the root - avoid being root.

I'm just dorking around on the internet my mind is elsewhere and suddenly I get a official-looking pop up telling me that there's a crucial Firefox update and a file to download so without thinking I download the file and run it then suddenly the installer erases itself and I come to and realize oh s*** I just fell for a spear phishing pop-up. So now instead of spending tonight arguing with terrorists apologizers in the bush thread I'm instead busy wiping my hard drive and reinstalling Windows Good Times!

So, I haven't fired up Trackmania Canyon in months.

At some point, they updated it really heavily, and now loads of shit is broken.
I spent an hour trying to get the game to boot [apparently it needed a driver update to work, since that's what fixed it].
I sit down to play with my controller -- mappings are gone, I get a debug console when I press a button. Bleh. Cleared out whatever the hell it was reading and mapped my buttons [which admittedly, is a lot nicer than it used to be].
I finally sit down to play some maps I have saved. First one I load is a road track in the sky and works just fine. The second one I loaded was a bit of a dirt track, and big-ass sections of road are missing, leading right into the void.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
At least the game runs better than it used to, but it always ran fairly decently anyway.

the single folder I intended to delete required root. I set a few safeguards (rm -i alias & modified terminal prompt) to help to avoid this type of mistake in the future.
