It just happened, btrfs can bring back those changes... right?
I haven't started using snapshots, sorry.
PhotoRec and foremost are just dumping files, that's not useful. I need the files and the directories they were in. Just a big dump of files is useless.
Ubuntu Server 12.04. I have a list of directories that got partly deleted. I hit CTRL+C as soon as I realized the deleting was taking more than 1 second on what I thought was an already empty directory.
