Linux Recovery

Definition - What does Linux Recovery mean?

Linux recovery refers to the set of methods and procedures that enables the restoration of operations on a Linux system after it stops working normally.

It is a type of system or operating system recovery procedure that is developed specifically for the Linux family of operating systems.

Techopedia explains Linux Recovery

Linux recovery is typically required when the operating system crashes or due to a corrupted system boot problem, data deletion, virus outbreak or any similar event that halts or affects the performance of the operating system. By default, Linux-based operating systems include a native system recovery mode that is initiated at system startup. This utility helps in restoring and repairing corrupted operating system files, operating system reinstallation and in restoring the system to a previous data or state.
