I have a ZFS volume on a Linux Debian.
A snapshot is took each night on this volume.
For whatever reason, a big file (virtual disk) was deleted several days ago. This file is still in use (by
lsof shows this file as deleted.
If I pause the
kvm process, I can recover the deleted file with
cp /proc/<pid>/fd/21 myfile.bak and use it in another virtual machine. But I don't need this current file.
I need the 2 days old version of this file.
As this file was deleted several days ago, it is not in the backups.
I think the file is present in the ZFS snapshots, but not sure. I don't see it in
Does anyone knows a way to get a not-really-deleted file from a ZFS snapshot?
