2021-08-19 05:45:20 Steven Xu description I've used this tool for a while now, but I'm still rather scared to use `rm -rf`. This is because the man page of this tool doesn't prevent `rm -f *`. For this reason I use GUI file explorers to delete where possible instead of on the terminal. I do frequent *Btrfs* snapshot backups. But I'm also worried that even if I restore from backup, I'm not sure if the next incremental backup will regard my copied data as a copy and not a move, thus double the backup size. Another tool that's similar in spirit to this tool is https://github.com/kaelzhang/shell-safe-rm. That hasn't been updated in a while, since 2018/02/21. I also don't think it's too straightforward to use these both at once. I've been wondering if it's possible to add a similar function to this tool, that is to move deleted files & folders into ``~/.local/share/Trash/`? This would solve the copy-from-backup issue too, as then I don't need to restore from backups on accidental deletion. I've used this tool for a while now, but I'm still rather scared to use `rm -rf`.
