Forum Thread: Kali Linux - Desktop Files Wiped

Booted up Kali Linux, started msfconsole , went for windows/meterpreter/reversetcp , setted all options , done the job , exited and noticed all files from Desktop got removed , tried locate lost folders no luck , tried find . fileName , no luck , all files and folders were removed from Rooted Users Desktop, where as other account was untouched.

Has this happened to anyone else?

If you are not on Persistence mode, you can just reboot your computer and it should be back.

Are you using Kali Sana (Kali 2) by chance? maybe its a bug?

Are you running Kali on a virtual machine?

Virtual Yes, Installed , anything changes is saved , never starting fresh. This time Root User Seems fresh since all got wiped,

its ok , im just wondering what caused that to avoid it in future.
