I have the same probel, except that I hit PF8 in the Midnight Commander which caused a recursion of unlink() to delete the files. Of course I don't have a backup. :-( As it has been mentioned by Diego F. Arias R., The Sleuth Kit could offer some help. When TSK was TCT, there was a command unrm which is dls today. Refer to % man dls for further information, and assert enough disk space because I think you have to work from an image. Furthermore, assert that no writes go to the disk you want to recover deleted files from. There's a good piece of documentation: % less /usr/local/share/doc/sleuthkit/ref_fs.txt Maybe it's a bit explainatory and helpful. First, make a dd copy of the partition, then run dls with the proper options on it. Sadly, I can't tell you more about this topic because I didn't have any luck until today solving my similar problem. Maybe you want to give back a little report when dls did work for you? -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
