I logged in as a root user and when moving a file, instead of:

mv myfile .

I entered

mv myfile ,

And now my file is gone but I am not sure where to. Where has it moved to?


You renamed the file to ","

To undo that

mv , myfile
  • Oh my!...Been staring at the screen for too long. Missed the , at the top of the ls output! Thanks Thomas! – dayuloli Mar 5 '16 at 16:05
