Re: mv on file deleted it?
mv *105* /var/www/jschwarz is the actual command
mv is hashed (/bin/mv)
The find produces nothing. I'm running ext3... so the undelete should
be the same, no?
I think I'm hosed. I do have backup, but no access to it until next
month, long story.
System is more or less standard. I think that the files were deleted by
another process, I will have to see if anything could have caused that.
Thanks for the help,

I don't think that this command can do any harm - except your mv
is something strange.
a) You have aliased mv or have another mv in your path
If this echoes /bin/mv you should be lucky.
b) You typed something different to what you wrote here
Go back in your shell-history and find the correct command.
If that's not possible, try:
find / -name "*105*"
Then lite another cigarette and wait.
c) Another process just deleted everything from your /var/www/jschwarz
Now it depends on your filesystem-type.
AFAIK, only for ext2 exists a kind of undelete.
In either case, it's probably easyest to restore from your backup.
(Of course you have one, don't you?)
d) If neither a)-c) apply, your system must be really screwed up.
