Well,it’s not only my windows XP. All my others data gone just because my curiosity to test out the most powerful command in Linux. rm -rf /
I already plan to fresh install my ubuntu once new version is out. That’s why I dare to test that powerfull command in my ubuntu box.
This morning, after my ubuntu Intreprid download completed I then happily burn the iso file to my empty cd, backup my stuff to to other drive and then happily run below command.
See, I’m not allowed to run that command. It’s suppose to be a warning for me not to do that.
Out of curiosity, I then add additional beautiful parameter –no-preserve-root
Ofter a few minutes running that command, I then realize something…oh my God. My other partition is mounted under /media directory. It’s mean that my C,D,E,F drive also included in my root and will be included to be removed….recursively with no mercy.
I then quickly close the terminal. Shut my pc off…stop doing anything..wondering….what will going to happen to my windows XP,my pictures,my data..my everything..Ya Allah..what I’m doing ….adoiiii…
I then start my pc..hoping that nothing happen…and..hmm..nope. Curiosity already killed my windows XP. I cannot boot to my windows XP.
Using my newly created Ubuntu Intrepid bootable CD, I then slowly open my 40GB Windows XP drive, and this is only what I have. Everything else have been removed.
Lucky my data in D,E and F drives still there.(hopefully lah…not yet to check all the files)
Well, maybe It’s time for me to test out data rocevery tools. Hopefully I can recover all my pictures. Other than that, I don’t care…
Hope you can learn some lesson here. I don’t know…you figure it out lah.
