General :: Recovery Deleted Folders And Files When Using Rm -rf Command?

Apr 2, 2010

I need to recover some folders and some files from my CentOS 5.3 X86_64 linux machine ext3 partition after I have deteled them with rm -rf command. After I have deleted the files (*.exp extension) and folders with rm -rf command, I have written a big archive 70GB on the same partitions but in a different path. I know that in windows if I do that, there's no way I can bring back the deleted files, 'cause the OS writes the information in the same cluster and therefor I can't bring back the files. I hope you guys understand what am I saying.

what program (that knows all extensions, or dosen't read a specific extension/extensions) can I use in order to get the date back ? I have used foremost and it worked, but this programs knows only specific extensions, like exe, jpg, avi, mpeg, etc and not my *.exp extension. The foremost program worked perfectly, but it dosen't know the *.exp extension that I need, in order to get the data back that has that extension.

General :: DU Command - Summary Of Files And Folders?

Jun 24, 2011

I use the following command to find files which are older than 60 days:

find /myfolder/* -mtime +60 > /myfolder/file.list

Now I want to find out the file size of all files contained in file.list in summary using the du command:
less /myfolder/file.list | xargs du -sh The du command prints the file sizes of every single file but not the summary and this is actually what I want.

Programming :: Command For Find/Replace In Text Files (inc. Files In Sub-folders)?

Oct 11, 2010

I found this command that works great finding and replacing a simple string to another in files located in that folder and all sub-folders.

Code: find . -name '*.php' | xargs perl -pi -e 's/OldText/NewText/g'

The problem I have is that I need to replace a more complex string, like this: Old string: /mnt/stor6-wc2-dfw1/627896/982574/ New string: /mnt/stor8-wc2-dfw1/369587/302589/ There I don't know how to do it... since the / is what separates the old from the new strings, and the strings that I want to replace have / in it. Also, I would like to know how to specify under what folder replace the files, for example, I want that it search/replaces all files under /var/www/mysite/htdocs folder.

Software :: Recover Deleted Files When Rm Command Was Used?

May 25, 2010

I wiped out 60% of my VirtualBox .vdi files on one of my partions. The file sizes ranged from 3gb to 9gb files. (I did have some backups but 4 months ago). Needless to say I'll be backing my files up more often (especially my Virtual Image .vdi files). So here are the steps...: [ Look, I know it seems like allot of steps, but its worth it in the end!!]

(By the way, these are all ext3 filesystems, I would imagine you could recover fat32 [windows} type filesystems too, but I just did this under Linux filesystems) 1--> If you've found yourself deleted any files, try to unmount the partition. ( In my case it was an external 2 1/2 hard drive, command used to unmount is sudo umount /dev/sda3)

1b--> If you only have one partition, then I'd suggest shutting down your computer and putting a Live CD in it (preferably the Ubuntu Live CD).

2--> Whether 1 or 1b applies to you, install ext3grep from Synaptic or any package manager. (if you had to reboot via a live CD, make sure you unmount the partition that has the deleted files.(example umount /dev/sda1 or in my case it was umount /dev/sda3). If you're on the LiveCD of Ubuntu, I believe it will let you install the ext3grep package using Synaptic Package manager and it will put it in RAM under the Live Desktop Session.

3--> Now here's the important part before you proceed any further. If the partition that has the deleted files is taking up 30gb (yes 30gb used space), then you have to mount an existing partition GREATER than 30gb ***FREE*** SPACE. I happened to have another partition /media/sda7 already mounted that had 50 gb free.

So at this point, you must go to any directory under your (recovery partition, i'm referring to my 50gb partition /media/sda7). To do this, run the command cd /media/sda7, now you're in your (recovery partition). You can make a new directory if you want, or just use any existing directory on the /media/sda7 partition. (I made a directory something like mkdir ./Yikes ) So I get into the directory by cd /media/sda7/Yikes then run the following command....:

ext3grep --restore-all /dev/sda3

4--> ***Keep in mind, you just ran that command from the /media/sda7/Yikes directory on your recovery partition. ***This will create a folder called "RESTORED_FILES" under/in the Yikes Directory.*** The ext3grep command you just submitted will try to recover every single file on that partition that has the deleted files (i.e. /dev/sda3). There is a way to restore single files and their paths, but I got frustrated and just did a full restore.

5--> Depending on the partition size and number of files, it could take 30 minutes to 2 hours or more before you start to see messages in the terminal screen saying "Restored file... Abc.txt or sam.jpg". Let it finish!!! At first you will see it saying "Group 1, Group 2 and crazy characters going across the screen, that's normal." You know it's begining the actual restore process when you start to see "Restored file...".

6--> At this point you can open a DIFFERENT terminal screen and do cd /media/sda7/Yikes/RESTORED_FILES to see the files being restored under the various directories. This does work because I was able to restore at least 25gb worth of files. Again, file sizes ranged from 3gb to 9gb!!

7--> Final step when the 1st terminal screen is done restoring the files, you can either open them up from the /media/sda7/Yikes/RESTORED_FILES directory to check them out, or you can copy them back to where they were deleted before. BUT I WOULD SAY TO MAKE A BACKUP OF THE RESTORED FILES, or keep the restored files in the /media/sda7 partition.

-->Again, I did a "ext3grep --restore-all /dev/sda3" command from the partition that had plenty of free space (i.e. 50gb) to restore the 30 gb worth of deleted files (and that ext3grep --restore-all /dev/sda3 command was run in the following directory /media/sda7/Yikes ).

-->Remember to unmount the /dev/sda3 partition (i.e. the partition that has the deleted files). DO NOT MOUNT /devs/sda3 when running the ext3grep --restore-all command. The ext3grep documentation states you don't want to write anything to that partition because you run the risk of writing over files or directories that could be recovered.

-->This ext3grep utility saved me Big Time!! 4 to 5 months of work restored because of this utility. You can get it from Synaptic Package Manger searching for ext3grep.

Ubuntu :: Recently Deleted File Recovery?

Jul 26, 2010

I recently accidentally (permanently) deleted a bunch of files off my computer. I used "foremost" to recover all my images, but there are still a bunch of videos that need to be recovered. The problem is that foremost seems to have also recovered a crapload of files from before i switched to ubuntu (i just removed windoze today) so i have a LOT of jpg images right now (over 400,000) and i don't want to deal with that many video files!How do i recover my recently deleted videos without getting a bunch that i don't want?? (can i specify the folder they were deleted from or something?)PS: i used this code to recover my picturesCode:sudo foremost -t jpg -i /dev/sda1

Ubuntu :: Data Recovery - There's Nothing In My 'Deleted Items'?

Jan 8, 2011

I have somehow managed to eradicate all of my films and music...I was going to update my external HDD (typical) and so I highlighted everything and went to drag it. My finger kind of slipped while the cursor was in the the same folder and I got a message saying something like:"Source file is in this destination. Cannot move. Do what?"There's me thinking not much can go wrong at this point so I clicked "Skip all".Everything disappeared

The file system says there's still only 500GB free on my 1.5TB, so the files are there but I just can't see them.how I can get them back?There's nothing in my 'Deleted Items' and I had a play with scalpel and PhotoRec and I either couldn't get them to work or they said they'd take way more time than I have.

Edit: Where did that smiling devil come from? That's really not how I feel right now.

Ubuntu :: Accidentally Deleted Windows 7 During Wubi Recovery?

Mar 8, 2011

What exactly I did here to aid in attempting to recover my Windows system. My laptop was dual Wubi-boot with Windows 7 and Ubuntu, and after encountering issues booting into my Wubi Ubuntu, I went in to recover important files to do a reinstall. Using an Ubuntu livecd, I created a directory called "win" (sudo mkdir /win) and then mounted my Windows 7 partition (sudo mount /dev/sda1 /win) to that folder name. However, after encountering some issues there, I made the mistake of removing the "win" folder without unmounting the Windows 7 partition using "rm -rf /win". After that, my Windows system appears to be missing. Can anyone tell me what exactly I did? Did I delete the partition?

OpenSUSE :: New Folders Being Deleted?

Mar 25, 2011

Just installed OpenSUSE 11.4 a few days ago and am totally updated.

When in KDE, if I create a new, empty folder using Dolphin or Konsole (Or from any application within KDE) and then log out, the folder is deleted. If I create a folder and put some data in it, then it stays.

When I ctrl+alt+f1 to a console and create an empty folder, then it stays, so its just inside KDE where this happens.

Im not even sure how to troubleshoot this. I checked dmesg and some log files, but don't see anything of interest.

I installed OpenSUSE 11.4 into a Virtual machine and it did the same thing, so this doesn't appear to be an isolated issue; sounds like a pretty major bug. I wanted to get some ideas from here before I submit a bug report, however.

General :: Data Recovery On HDD - Command Line Prompt

Feb 11, 2010

I installed Fedora 10 on a pc I built from a barebones package, I have had no problems over the past couple months until recently. When I start up the pc the OS lags on a black screen with the cursor blinking. I have searched forums but I guess since I am a newbie I am still lost in the translations. What I am trying to do is save my files that are on the pc to a DVD-RW or my external hard drive before I have to reinstall the software again.

My questions are as follows:
How can I locate the files on the hard drive? When I have the bootable cd-rom inserted I am unable to locate the HDD. How can I transfer my files using the command line prompt? Finally, is it possible just to upgrade to the latest Fedora without losing my files and going through the data recovery process head ache? Or can I reinstall the OS and not lose my files?

Ubuntu :: Deleted Files On USB Drive Not Actually Deleted?

Jun 7, 2010

I searched the forum with various terms and didn't find anything, so my apologies if this is a common and/or newbie problem.It seems that when I have a USB driveplugged in to switch the files around, those that I delete are still taking up space. I first noticed it with a Chinese MP3 player and thought it was the player being crappy. I could still play all the songs that were supposedly gone. Today, I noticed it with a little thumb drive that I've had for years. I plugged it into my husband's computer running winXP, and the files showed up in a weird, unusable form. I was able to delete them for real.

General :: /bin Directory Is Deleted After Killed Yum Update Command

Jan 7, 2010

I have a serious problem on my VPS. I ran "yum update" and then hit the Ctrl+C to cancel when I realized that I need to specify a package to update, not all of them, but when the console returned suddenly I lost the connection, when I try to reconnect to the machine, it says /bin/bash not found !! even when I try to issue commands from the VPS control panel, it reports that the commands are not there

I can issue a ticket for the ISP to resolve this, but I need to know the risks before I do this, I have no backup on MySQL and 2 live web applications, although they are still running, I am afraid if I restarted the VPS everything will be gone.

Ubuntu :: Folders Are Missing / Slowly Be Deleted

Jan 27, 2010

I have a 320 g.b hard drive for a Ubuntu and a 500 g.b Windows XP. I haven't used XP in a while because well..its windows. Anyway, I wanted to go back to the windows XP side because I needed to do some editing on sony vegas. I restarted the computer and tried starting windows and everything in the system32 folder is totally gone!I don't know what to do because I don't want to have to do a fresh install and I don't have enough space to bring everything over to the ubuntu side.

I can't find 90% of my music when I search for it in the folders. (On the ubuntu linux side). When I go into rythmbox, my music is slowly being deleted (Like my Joe satriani, Crystal planet). What is funny is that rythmbox can see a lot of my music (not all) but not the folder program. Its really weird, when I take the pure locations of the music (that rythmbox can see), and copy them, then go into folders and paste them into the search at the top, they come up. But, when I click on the up button (in folders) they don't show the folder I was just in.If some one can help me with:

1. Knowing to fix windows XP without having to reinstall anything.
2. Knowing how to save my folders from being randomly deleted.
