Thanks a lot for your prompt response!
I stopped all the services immediately, umount the volume and run recovery. It will take
some time and hopefully I will have some results tomorrow.
In case not, I am asking for the worst case scenario.
Luckily, galaxy database, all datasets, tool_shed and all tools were on another location,
so I still have them. He deleted only galaxy directory. Of course, I had some local tools
an wrappers there, but at least I hope I can still do something.
Thanks once again!

Wow, sorry to hear this. If the datasets themselves were removed, it's unlikely
there'd be a way to get them back. Some filesystems do have undelete tools to attempt
to recover data that has not yet been overwritten. If you can stop all activity on that
filesystem while investigating and attempt to recover, this would likely increase the
amount of data you'd be able to recover.
It would be possible to reconnect to the database assuming it was not SQLite and also
removed. Your existing backed up configs should do this automatically. This would restore
your users and their Galaxy representations of things, such as histories, but without the
actual data in those histories.

The colleague of mine mistakenly deleted my Galaxy installation (rm -rf *). Unfortunately
there is no backup of complete installation. I have backup only configuration files.
Is there any chance to fetch new Galaxy instance from git and to connect it to the old
database? Or maybe any other suggestion what to do in such case?
Many thanks in advance!
