Lost files i needed. Help!


Hi, Im on ubuntu 16.04 i used bleachbit to delete stuff for a while it worked great but now it deleted all my virtualbox vms how do i get them back without using photorec

Did you have the option "overwrite files to hide contents" enable? Or did you use the "overwrite free space" option? :(

Especially if you did not, try to avoid using the computer in such a way that would write more changes to the same disk. Then you can try using something like photorec, but the files may be unrecoverable. Perhaps you have a backup copy.
