I am trying to follow this guide:



  • created a repository
  • added a remote
  • added all the files via git annex add .
  • commited my changes
  • synced my repositories

By the time I tied to actually get the content from repo one into repo two (via git annex get folder) I noticed that all of my stuff had been deleted from repo one (and not backed up by git annex anywhere else!).

How can I get my stuff back?

Also, why would any software which is meant for backup or archiving (or any sane software in general) delete stuff without me actually typing rm or delete into the terminal and without giving me a big warning message and a confirmation prompt?
