Thanks again Roland, I think I must have lost those files when fsck_ffs did its salvage operation
The expected files were /disk02/bkup/dump/ad0s1a-090909.dump /disk02/bkup/dump/ad0s1e-090909.dump /disk02/bkup/dump/ad0s1f-090909.dump fls from the image file => listfile # sed -n 30153,30158p list d/d 4804608: bkup d/d 918528: servers + d/d 918529: apache ++ d/d 918530: httpd-2.0.40 +++ d/d 918531: os ++++ d/d 918532: os2 Shows the bkup directory but no subdirectory (i.e ../dump/. or dumpfiles Now, if perchance these files were found with fls what would have been the method to extract them back and make them readable to the file system.
