    I accidentally deleted the file called "fstab,v" not "fstab"
    The files location was /etc/fstab,v

    Can someone let me know if it is very important file and what its used for & how to restore?, as my server seems to be running fine, but I don't want to get into any problems later down the line.

    Hello,

    I thinks you do not have to worry about that. Cheers!

    A file with a ",v" at the end is an RCS changelog. This is used to keep track of changes to a file. Deleting an RCS changelog will prevent you from reverting changes to the file, but will not damage the file itself.

    This is the man (manual) page for RCS:

    rcs(1): change RCS file attribs - Linux man page

    Deleting the fstab,v file will not affect the fstab file itself, but please use caution when deleting files in the future, especially if you are not sure of their purpose.
