- Unix/Linux undelete/recover deleted files 11 answers
Usually, the best way to recover a deleted file is to have backups and that, if the backup failed, you should immediately remount the drive read-only. (See this thread: How to recover a file just deleted )
But in some occasions, if the deleted file wasn't that important, it just would save some time to just "undelete" it.
Is there a simple way I could try on bash for the case that the deleted file on an ext4 filesystem was the only file on the disk, especially, if the disk is not used otherwise?
