More on rm (or “Oops! I Didn't Really Mean That.”)

When you delete a file with Linux, it is gone. If you didn't really mean to delete (or rm) a file, it is time to find out if you have been keeping good backups. The other option is to check with the rm command before you delete a file. Instead of simply typing rm followed by the filename, try this:

rm -i file_name1 file_name2 file_name3
