Projects / Ext2 Salvage

Ext2 Salvage

e2salvage is a utility which tries to recover a data from damaged ext2 filesystems. Unlike e2fsck, it does not look for the data at particular places and it don't tend to believe the data it finds; thus it can handle much more damaged filesystem. Moreover, fsck connects the found i-nodes to lost+found directory. e2salvage instead tries to recover the directory structure.
