How to protect external hard disk from accidental deletion?
I have a Seagate External Hard disk(2TB) containing most of the important documents/videos related to my work(Mostly CCTV videos Iam required to keep for a while). I once accidentally pressed delete and enter in the number pad on the right side of keyboard and lost 30 GB folder in a second.
Is there any software to protect files from accidents like this?

If you don't write anything after you delete something, it can almost certainly be undeleted. Otherwise, there's the risk of deleted files being overwritten (when you normally delete a file, it isn't physically erased, it just tells a "catalog" of files that the file is deleted and the physical space can be overwritten with something else).
Also, see fsLock.
Also, if you're using NTFS on that hard-drive, you can change security settings and totally disallow deleting operations.
