I think that the recovery Tag is far too broad as there are so many different types of recovery (which also have tags for them) such as data-recovery, password-recovery, partition-recovery and so on. I think it needs to be split up into different types of recovery. Then obviously Axe the recovery tag.
Completely agree with you. Checked first 50 question of tag - found no reason to keep it.
Moreover, a lot of questions tagged with recovery tag also have data-recovery, password-recovery andpartition-recovery tags with them which makes recovery tag unmeaningful.
Another part of questions use 2 tags e.g. partition and recovery in place of partitiion-recovery, so they can live without recovery too.
And this question is probably the best evidence for removing it.
After several months of trickle edits, and many small bites, the tag has been removed from all the questions.
Tagliminated. Tagnnihilation. Tagatomised!
It seems I missed... quite a lot. It still lives :(
