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
Many thanks in advance!
