    The below case was narrated to me by a friend. He cleared all product files.

    This is his story…

     

    I cleared all product files!

    During my early years with Finacle (over a decade ago), I was working on a Finacle implementation project as part of the implementation team.

    I’d experienced an EOD failure due to a lack of space on my file-system.

    The sys-admin wasn’t available to increase my partition space so I decided to be smart and get some quick space by clearing the old logs, reports, and debug as I didn’t have any need for them. You know how tempting fast solutions can be.

     

    so! I was on a path that had some product scripts and some logs and I intended to clear the logs.

    I wanted to type;

    rm -rf *.log

    but I typed;

    rm -rf *.*

    I typed really fast and pressed ENTER. And immediately… I knew… I fucked up.

    The directory was emptied. I froze!

    .

    .

    I was petrified for a whole 10mins!!!

     

    Then I remembered I have a backup I had taken the previous day. This backup saved me.

    Since then, I take a backup every day when I’m on a project.
