Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 98754
Salvaging 'deleted' files
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:55:32 EDT
Description of problem:
On a Novell fileserver, when a user deletes a file, the file can usually be
recovered with the 'Filer' utility. The same is true when an application such
as MS Excel saves a modified file -- the previous version of the file can be
salvaged if necessary. If RedHat Linux does not have this capability, then it
should be added.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Deleted a file. How can I recover it?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Delete a file or modify and save an Excel file (with Linux running Samba server).
2. Run a utility, like Novell's 'Filer', to un-delete the file.
File permanently deleted.
File marked as deleted, able to be recovered.
I a frequently asked to restore spreadsheets from previously deleted versions.
If I am going to put a server in place for our Accounting Department to store
its spreadsheets, it is imperative that the server have this capability.
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases,
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
