While trying to move a git repository, I ran
rm -rf desktop and wiped every file I had there. Normally this would not be that big of a deal since I use GitHub, but I had several hundred screenshots / PDFs that I would like to recover.
What's the best way to go about this (if there is any)? From what I've read I it seems I need to download some external software, but can't seem to figure out which is best.
I am running OS X 10.10.4 on a MacBook Pro, and unfortunately never set up Time Machine.
