   with debugfs. When all the inodes are indexed, recover asks you some
   questions about the deleted file. These questions are:
  * Hard disk device name
  * Year of deletion
  * Month of deletion
  * Weekday of deletion
  * First/Last possible day of month
  * Min/Max possible file size
  * Min/Max possible deletion hour
  * Min/Max possible deletion minute
  * User ID of the deleted file
  * A text string the file included (can be ignored)

   and dumps the inodes into the directory. Finally he asks you if you
   want to filter the inodes again (in case you typed some wrong


I have not used said package, but came across it during another install.
