Re: file recovery - urgent
I did not catch what type fies you lost. Some files can be recovered using
some utilities I would have to look up. I made the same mistake you did. I
deleted data that had not been backed up. I was able to recover many files.
I do not remember if it was reiserfs or EXT2/3 now. If you have C code or
similar text based files you can recover chunks (blocks) using grep on the
raw device. I have had to recover so code that way before. Not fun but you
can find many things if you have terms you can search for. I hope this
helps. I will try to look up the utils I used before also.
