Recovering files from EXT3 filesystem


As you may already know, unlike EXT2, recovering deleted files from EXT3 used to be as hard as making use of data craving techniques on the raw data.

Here comes a good news. Carlo Wood has developed a EXT3 file (and directories too) recovery tool to recover his accidentally rm -rf deleted home directory containing 3GB of data, and he would like to share this useful tool with all of us. Up to my understanding, the tool make use of the journals to make this "impossible" task possible.

Don't hesitate to read his article for detailed explanation on the EXT3 filesystem and the recovery tool.
