[gmx-users] Understanding about the deleted trajectory file

A file is (generally) data on a disk, of which the operating system
knows where it is. Knowing where the file is depends on the inode of
the file. Deleting a file is usually removing the inode, not the data.
But once the inode is removed, the data can no longer be recognized as
a certain file. If you write to a trajectory and you remove the inode,
the data simply goes void... it's written to be forgotten.
