@FssOfDeath @thurloat what I gathered from talking to him is that he has fallen into the habit of always using rm -rf so that he doesn’t get warnings when deleting directories that aren’t empty. He does it so much that his shell suggests it (I don’t know what he is using for the suggest function).
I told him that this was bad. To stop. To read up on why some people do the exact opposite and alias rm to “move to trash directory”.
Kids these days
- This drive isn’t backed up because its massive and not intended for long-term data storage. It has redundancy/RAID but that’s not the same as backup
- I think he said something about using c shell. Maybe there’s a way to get that shell to suggest commands from history? This wasn’t a tab-autocomplete issue. I’ve, honestly, never seen command suggestion like this before.
